A good place to start would be the link below.
Tip when you get the code back use a CD writer pen and write it on the CD. I do this with all my CDs that need a code. then if you have the CD you have the code as well Wink

If you have a OEM copy of XP, you should be able to use internet activation.

Alternativly, you should be able to phone them, so long as it has been over 2 months after your last activation (too expesnsive to hold the information in a active DB longer than this).
