    Can you connect it up to your desktop? You might be able to get a lead that will power and connect the new HD to your desktop, then just put it on as you would normally, I think...

    i don't have a desktop

    You can install Windows (or any OS) from a usb flash drive. ]Here's a guide.
    You can also use an external DVD/CD drive.

    it requires a xp installation cd

    I don't have one as XP was bulit in to the netbook

    is there any way to transfer it to the usb then reinstall it to the new hdd?

    I've worked on a few friends NC10's Just finished one last night, I have all the drivers here if you get stuck, I can send you a link for direct downloads for the 6 or 7 XP drivers needed....

    2 Ways only really, Bootable USB Drive with XP ISO on, I have never had this to work on 3 of them, always errors...

    I have a Liteon USB CD Drive, does the job perfect, but you will need an XP CD though :-(

    Why not just clone the original hard drive and that way it will still have the recovery partition in tact.
