Installing XP on more than one Computer - Windows XP/2000/ME

Is it possible to use an installation disk for XP on more than one computer. What I would ideally like to do is to use the current CD that I have already purchased to install on a second PC. Of course I would need to buy a second license. What I would like to know is whether there is an option to purchase that license during activation, rather than having to go out and purchase another CD....

    Is it possible to use an installation disk for XP on more
    than one computer. What I would ideally like to do is to
    use the current CD that I have already purchased to
    install on a second PC. Of course I would need to buy a
    second license. What I would like to know is whether
    there is an option to purchase that license during
    activation, rather than having to go out and purchase
    another CD.

    Greetings --

    Yes, that's possible, assuming you have a retail license.
    Naturally, Microsoft cannot sell additional OEM licenses. Just have
    your credit card available when you call to activate. Be aware,
    however, that you'll probably pay more this way than you would if you
    were to buy a second copy of WinXP from a discount retailer; Microsoft
    will only offer you a 15% discount off their MSRP.

    You can use the same Windows XP installation disk, but you'll
    need a new license (Product Key) for each installation on a different
    computer.

    To purchase an additional Windows XP license, visit:
