The firm I work for buy their PC's from HP, they come with a HP disc with win XP Pro with the official Microsoft XP Pro sticker on it.
But the company does not use XP it uses win 2000, my question is if those xp oem licences are not used as the OS is never activated but replaced would it be legal to use one or more of those unused licences on self build machines.

Djohn the problem is as I said in the thread they are off the shelf HP machines (somewhere in the region of 600)

If they are full XP disc not restore, and not loaded on another comp they should be OK to use
