WinXP User License

So I bought a copy last summer after buying my Mac with anticipation of using it with a Boot Camp install that requires a licensed copy of WinXP SP2. Well I wound up going with Parallels instead were I can use almost any copy of Windows (or Linux) and went ahead and just installed the SP2 disk I bought.

What brings up my question is that I tried to install the same licensed copy of WinXP SP2 on a laptop that I was selling to my cousin and it told me that it was already registered. I'm wondering if I decide to remove WinXP from my Mac could I reinstall it on another computer? I'm thinking about building a new desktop and would rather stick with WinXP rather than moving up to Vista and I was wondering if I could install the copy I already have.

I would call Microsoft and tell them the laptop you installed windows on had harddrive failure and you trashed it. Tell them you just finished building a desktop and would like to install Windows on it, but need a new serial.

I was hoping I wouldn't have to do that. Thanks.
