If i bought Windows XP pro for 1 computer can i also install it on another computer in the house or would i need a license?

You could have one physical copy and purchase another license key from MS.

I think you will find that using one copy on two computers will lead to problems in the long run with validation eventually failing and you will be unable to download updates patches etc.
