    I have been reading up on unattended installs and I think you can do it that way... you can also have it automatically activated..

    I will have to read up on it a little more!

    I'm not positive but mainly I read this about MS OFFICE XP. But try editing the setupp.ini in the I386 Folder from your XP CD. Type in PIDKEY=######################### (Do not put dashes) under the [Pid] section. It might work, might not but at least it's a start :)
