Im not sure with vista. OEM version will be to one machine, not sure about a normal disk tho. I mean MS always say that its for 1 machine, but ive never had problems with multiple installations of XP. Vista could be totally different tho.

As far as i know,MS have cancelled the corporate keys because of to much piracy. Im running the business edition from my action pack, ive got it on 3 computers now, but you get 10 keys so i havent tried it with the same one.
