Also, do you now if the Mac ignores the security most XP CDs have, where it is keyed to a specific system configuration?

To reply to both comments:

Yes, macs can read NTFS. They just can't write it. And there's no way for the mac to ignore XP's built in security. It's a real live XP install, and as far as it knows it's running on a PC.

However, I've had a fair amount of success calling Microsoft and telling them that I was just reinstalling and getting them to give me an activation code.
