For a Dell, you load the Operating System disk in order to restore it. The other disks contain the drivers and programs needed to restore you computer to fresh out of the factory condition. You don't have to install the programs, but the drivers are a must for your system to function correctly.
You are also able to do a repair install of Windows with the OS disk. This will leave the data and programs intact while replacing the operating system files. You can use these instructions for that: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
