XP codes

By rnhunter ·
I am running a small home network and have recently formated a drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro. Previously in one of your newsletters you told me how to run several computers using only one CD key: ie by changing the key code. Are youo able to forward these details to me again please.

Thanks and REgards
