I ran across this site on a quest to find information about insatlling Windows XP on another computer.
I recently purchased a new computer and since I have a copy af Windows XP, I thought I would be able to install that copy onto my new system. Turns out, I am probably wrong. The only thing that really stinks about this is that I only want to install XP on the new on to run games and Adobe CS2. I use my old computer for the internet. I didn't want to buy a new OS, but now it seems I may have to. Any suggestions? Is there anything I can do? Thank you in advance for any and all responses.

One copy of XP to one machine is the short story.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
