    Here's a good place to start:  http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/details.aspx?view=info&itemid=247094#productOffers


    With the exception of special participation in academic-only licenses downloaded from a Microsoft website, as far as I know there is NO retailer on the internet that is authorized by Microsoft to sell you a Genuine downloadable copy of any edition of XP.  AFAIK even Microsoft itself does not sell XP in a downloadable format on its own website.  (It does sell Vista in downloadable format.)
