I had a system crash related to installing xp sp3. The only way I could get the system back up was to reinstall windows. Is there any way to find the files that were in the previous windows installation's 'my documents' folder? I had a few important files lost thru this process, and wondered if there is any possibility of recovering them.

Depending on how you reinstalled there may be a folder windows.old on your computer.
Look in there.
