XP licence rules

I have a version of XP Pro on my main pc and have also installed it on a second pc for the kids. I now have the "register this version of window" type of message popping up. At the top of the sticker with the OEM licence number on it, it says: Windddows XP Proffesional 1-2CPU". Does this mean that I can use and legally register this with a second pc? Cheers, Garry.

No. 1 licence = 1 PC click here

In short, no. The license is for use on one pc.

except if you have a multi user licence, then you can put it on multiple PC's
