    You can't take it back after you copied it. It's called a EULA and if you open the packet to copy it... You own it.

    BTW, its bootable.

    GoNz0 i think i know that, it's so obvious .... i juz rather use the copied cd instead of the original so i don't get any scratches on that expensive software.

    BTW, thanx i'll try to boot on the cd next time i re-install

    Ahh that's what you were saying jasonb. I was thinking how GoNzO was. All you have to do is have the cd rom to boot first in the bios. Insert the xp cd, boot up & follow the instuctions. :D
