It is possible, but it would be against the End User License Agreement for XP

1. GRANT OF LICENSE.
Microsoft grants you the following rights provided that
you comply with all terms and conditions of this EULA:

1.1 Installation and use. You may install, use, access,
display and run one copy of the Software on a single
computer
, such as a workstation, terminal or other
device ("Workstation Computer").

Thanks A Andrew
I guess this is one of M$ gray areas seeing how it would only be "one copy of the Software on a single computer"
and you could only access one copy at a time. :thumbsup: You have probably guessed from a earlier post what I'm trying to do.

Thanks
