I know, I know... we're a little behind the times but there was nothing
wrong with 2000 in my eyes :) The bosses have inquired whether or not
we can roll out XP, I dont really have a problem with it anymore. And
yes, I know Vista is coming out but I dont envision going to that
anytime in the near future unless absolutely necessary.

question is.. whats the best way to roll-out with this scenario? we
have a bunch of dell gx270's, 280's, 620's, that came with XP licenses
(sticker on the top, but we installed 2k on them anyway via an image).

Not completely up to par with how the whole activation requirements
work, but someone mentioned that OEM doesnt require activation. How
can I complete this with one image? need to buy a volume copy? any
hints very much appreciated!
