Product Activation was Re: [NTO] Want XP?
- There is no product activation if you have an OEM version of WinXP.
I unfortunatley verified this when I had to reinstall it, after my first
attempt to install Linux on another partition took out the first partition.
(I even bought the latest Partition Magic beforehand to avoid that!)
I have been wanting to look at Linux for years, but did not have a PC with
enough room to run it. I can now confirm that WinXP Home and RedHat Linux
7.2 can coexist (if you install it right!)
I only have two problems with Linux. It does not see my internal modem (I
knew this would be an issue). Even if I had a compatible modem, I doubt I
could use Linux to access my free year of MSN that came with the new PC.
