resurrecting a laptop

So, one of my cubs has a laptop with a failing hard drive, just a few months out of warranty.

Trouble is, it's a hand-me-down and the cub whose it was at first either lost or tossed the WinXP reinstall/recover CD.

I was able to back up the hard drive, so files are safe, but what's my next move? I can get a new drive of equal or greater size for $50. What should I do for an OS?
