I am reinstalling Windows XP Home Edition on an IBM NetVista a22p. Does the product activation still work?

Yes. Have you abandoned your effort to Recover and now have an installation CD?

It's quite risky to do the recovery cd without knowing how many. I am wondering if we can use the product key on the Windows XP sticker on the machine.

I'll take a wee bit of credit for what was said in post #6. ;)
