Make sure that your system has about 500MB of free disk space!
Download the latest PE Builder version (self-installing package) and install it.
Start PE Builder (pebuilder.exe). When you start PE Builder for the first time it will ask if you agree with the license agreement.
Now PE Builder will ask to search for windows installation files. If you don't have your windows XP setup/installation files on your system you must insert the original Microsoft Windows XP installation/setup CD at this point. The files you have at c:\windows are not installation files. They are your already installed files! Click "yes" to start searching. PE Builder will now search all fixed- and CD-Rom drives for Windows installation files. This will take some time. When more than one valid location is found, a dialog will appear where you can select which location you want to use.
At the main PE Builder dialog, select the "Burn to CD/DVD" option. When you are using an erasable medium, make sure that the "AutoErase RW" option is enabled. The "burn using" option should be set to "StarBurn". Select your CD writer device from the Device list.
Hit the "build" button. PE Builder will now ask you to create a BartPE directory, answer with "yes".
The license for your Microsoft Windows XP product is shown. Read it and agree to it to continue.
PE Builder will now start building BartPE. This will take a few minutes. You will see a lot of files getting copied and/or decompressed, the ISO image build and the data recorded to your CD/DVD writer. If the data verify was correct and there where no errors reported you can boot the CD/DVD!

I think they thought this step was self evident.
TAKE OUT THE XP CD AND PUT IN THE BLANK CD THAT WILL BECOME THE BARTPE CD
You do not overwrite the original CD. These CDs are not re-writeable anyway so you can't overwrite it.
Is one supposed to overwrite the MS original system CD belonging to a different computer just to rescue another machine? From the licensing point of view - may be yes but I don't think so, really. Do you?
You assume correctly.
A: Is the assumption that the BARTPE CD is to be prepared on a working PC and not the PC that will not boot?... I assume YES is the answer and if so:
It doesn't matter.
B: When the instruction is to insert the CD with "installation files" should one insert the CD bonded (or belonging to) to the PC which works or the CD bonded to the PC that one is trying to revive?
