    hey guy I have installed xp before and activated my oem version. Later I took it off and now I kinds need it back on there. Will I have problems with activation?

    Another question, I now have leopard installed do I really need the DVD once installed to complete driver set up? I did it ok in Tiger. Hope this is clear enough thanks guys!

    If you are using it on the same machine you should not have any problems. If it fails to activate just call the number provided and tell them it is a reinstall.

    Yep the bootcamp drivers are on there,unlike Tiger where you could burn them to a separate Disk,
    time to find a new coaster for a few minutes

    Don't forget to get your latest video drivers once you are booted to XP.

    I believe all the DVDs are the same, so you should be good to go.
