it depends if vista is OEM or retail, but coz there is only one cd key, you can only have it on 1 pc at a time

Technically yes but if you know what your doing the OEM dvd is Identical to the retail only lacking both 32bit and 64bit. Thats the only real limitation of OEM Vista is you get one or the other.
