Yup. In the DB2 product directory (depends on platform - you don't mention
which one you're on - and version - which you also don't mention), there is a
directory called "install". In there is "db2setup" - the same program you
used to install. You can recreate your instances from there.
Personally, I'd rather lose the drive with DB2 on it than my instances -
instances have configuration (and the default database path is in the
instance owner's home directory). The DB2 drive only has an installation
plus any fixpaks. Much easier to recover that from CD plus any archive of
the fixpak I may have (or just download the latest again).
