If you have valid CD keys for each computer and the system on the laptop is the same as the system on the desktop (XPHome, XPPro, XP Media Center Edition) - then "generally" it will work to repair the system. But there are more variables to this, such as the version of the installation CD (no SP, SP1, SP1a, SP2) and the type of CD (Upgrade, OEM, full retail, etc)
Worst case is that it won't let you do the repair - so give it a shot and see.
