Possession of a Windows CD does not equate to haveing a legitimate license.
Read the EULA, Windows licensces are NON-TRANSFERABLE. This issue had been
causing some grief to charities using second hand PCs, so many of the more
sensible computer charities have switched to Open Source alternatives.

24/7, slight exaggeration. I don't reply to every and any HTML formatted 
email message. 
Just so it doesn't have to be repeated in what you call a 'flame', there is
only one format suitable for posting to most public mailing lists, including
this one, and that is plain text. The reasons have been said a thousand times,
but if anyone is unsure, please email me privately, and I will help you in a
kind fashion (I am serious).

Anyway, can we get back to talking about wireless? :)
