Is there any kind of protection, activation, registration malarkey that will stop me installing vista premium oem on a second pc?

I've been given a 2nd pc, but it has xp on it - i would prefer to put vista on it - just wondering if its going to lock me out after 30 days or something if i try to install the vista i currently have installed on machine number one

ALmost certainly will lock you out after 30 days. No version can go on to more than one PC and OEM versions are tied to the one machine/motherboard.
