    Installing Windows XP Home

    I have two computers at home, both running Windows 98SE. I am planning on upgrading both to Windows XP Home very soon. Am I going to have to buy two copies of XP or is it possible to install the OS on more than one computer?

    One machine, one copy of the OS.

    So you're gonna be needing two.

    It will install on more than one machine, but will only allow activation on one.

    A linux derivative on one of the computers is a definite possibility. Have you actually used Lindows 4 Pigboy?
