WinXP Format and reinstall help

Will I need to reenter my product key, because I dont have it anymore. If I do, how do I get the product key from the current install.

Good question. You didn't write the S/N down??? Usually I'll insert a S/N Test File onto the CD's so I don't forget. Let us know what happens.

Don't have XP at work so I couldn't try it. But I did a search and found this.

So all that program does is view the current installation key?
