    Hi,

    I want to install XP on the iMac I've order so I can run a few old
    bits of s/w. I need to get hold of XP and I notice that amazon and a
    few other places sell XP SP2 OEM. Is this ok to install ? I'm not
    totally sure of the liciencing situation and how Microsoft will feel
    about me loading the OS on the iMac !

    My OEM Copy was no problem to install and it runs fine, but I am using
    bootcamp - had to register? it by phone though as I couldn't get XP to
    connect to the net via the Apple USB modem.
