XP Home & Machine upgrade etc.

I'm thinking of buying a number of new parts to upgrade a PC I have and was looking at getting an OEM version of Windows XP Home at the same time. Thing is I know very little about XP and wanted to know if there are any issues I should be aware of with regards to changing to this as my operating system - currently using Win98se...

* Is there any differences between the full retail version of XP Home and the OEM version?

* I read somewhere that you have to contact Micro-shaft to activate it? If/when you install/re-install it?
