Default Windows Xp Activation!

I have the LEGAL copy of Windows XP, I have RE-installed it many times on my computer by calling Microsoft and getting the numbers, but can you do it on a second computer? and if you do, is there any way they can track you down? I mean I have the legal copy.

depends. if you have windows xp PROFESSIONAL then you can and they won't care. they never do, you'll just get the little thingy saying "this product key is already in use" but no the FBI won't come to your door so no worries =)
