Thank you for the reply, Slim. I already have several OS's (Win 98, NT4, Linux) in addition to XP on my drive, so I know how to access these from the boot loader. I'm sure that the information will be useful to others, though.
My question was a bit different. I want to install a second XP system (on the second hard drive, as you recommended) and don't want to go though the phone call bit (I could of course- I'm not
trying to do anything illicit). The hardware hasn't changed at all, so it should be possible to copy the activation key from the first installation- if
I know where it resides. Do you have any information on that?
