Does anyone have a link to a how-to for inserting the cd-key in WinXP? Something similiar to what Josetann has on his site for Win98, except for WinXP.

ps... before someone barks about no piracy, cd-key gens, dmca violations, decss source code, pornography, steroids, hashish, heroin or whatever in the forums - I am just backing up my LEGAL copy of WinXP.

Suuuure you are. Whatever you say. Jeeez Gadget, you sure put your disclosers in small print!

Google isn't helping. But what about slipstreaming the disc and adding a simple notepad file containing the Serial Number in it? Then just add it in. That way you could explore the disc and get it. I know that's not what you wanted, but it's a possible cure for now:p Not sure if it's possible on XP from the results I'm getting, but I don't see why not.

I'll look some more tomarrow, but even microsoft's knowledge base didn't pop much up that you didn't already know. Lots of stuff to dig through though.

Another 98 site (FYI I guess. only thing that came up thus far)
