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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
