Yes you can only use Windows XP on one computer unfortunately...

You'll have to buy another copy to use on another computer :(

To uninstall XP from the kids pc you will either have to format hard drive and start again, or (if you installed onto a seperate partition) firstly use a hex editor to replace the master boot record (MBR) with what is in the file 'Bootsect.dos', then reboot and delete XP from that partition.
