REINSTALLING XP OS on a separate partition--applications?

    My original installation of XP became so discombobulated that I threw
    in the towel and re installed it on a separate partition. The original
    xP is still on "c" drive together with many applications.

    My question is: how do I activate the applications when I boot up the
    new XP on it's new partition? I don't want to lose the files created
    by the applications.

    I don't want duplicate applications in the system.

    If necessary, I have the original cd's that the applications are on.

    All replies, advice, info, etc. welcomed!

    you will need to reinstall the applications...
    all your data will be accessable ...
    and you may then delete your windows installation and programs that were
    on your C: drive
