so if i want to install windows xp on a windows 98 i only basically need a genuine windows xp cd?

Any thing else?

you need to ensure that the computer meets the recommended hardware configuration standard for running Windows XP.

300 MHz or higher processor speed recommended.

128 MB of RAM or higher recommended

1.5 Gigabytes of available hard disk space

Super VGA (800 × 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor

CD-ROM or DVD drive

Ok, so would the licence key be on the cd or..?

You will get a

-brief manual for XPs use
-A windows CD
-A COA (certificate of authenticity) sticker with the key.

As I understand it, XP is the first Windows operating system to be sold without a key number.

Contact with MS after installing a genuine copy of XT will allow you to continue to use it on that computer. Their records will show who, what, and when.
This effectively makes it unique and anyone who takes over your CD hoping to install it on their computer will be unable to have it 'activated' or whatever the term is.

No it isnt. My laptop. Home PC and every other legitimate XP machines I have had to use or repair has had a licence key attached. They require authentication by phone or internet to confirm it isnt a dodgy copy but otherwise it still requires a CD key.

Also this is certainly not true. I have an XP CD in my repair toolbox and have used it on about 15 computers to reboot XP afresh. If I use my XP CD key of course I cannot activate it but a CD is the same as any other one.
