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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
