I am worried that if I pack the web in how would I activate xp .has anyone done it

  Installer. 21:43 05 Feb 2003

There is a phone option, not tried it.

web should be to register it not activate, if not.... activate then don't use the web

You don't make it clear fitcher - is your Win XP activated now or not. If so you don't have to use the web.

If you mean some future activation when you no longer have access to the web then Installer is right - there is a phone option.

The phone option will work fine as long as everything is valid, mine never activated from the web at all so it was the only option available to me. Didn't get any problems when I re-activated again by phone a few months later after a reload.

Phone or web - both are equally OK.

Ring the freephone number it gives, you type in the long code and it reads one back. Best to do it sat next to the PC.

Not being an XP user can someone tell me what this activation thing is.

Looks like another reason for staying with win98se.
