its not the CD, its actually the unique COI that you are paying money for.

even if you get the SP2 cd's from MS, its written on them that copy this CD for distribution.

2)that is also why your linux work. it's not microsoft

3)that's just like roxio, they will install a roxio assistant in your registry when you download an update to their easy cd creator software to see if you have a legitimate copy of their software.
if you don't, you won't be able to burn cds

4)"I heard it through the grapevine"

1 to 3) My friend of mine has tons of illegal copies of windows and other softwares. He told me tat there wont be any problem updating the windows and stuff.

4) Is it a rumor???Are u sure???

are NOT tolerated here as you're basically asking for information regarding illegally obtained software.

I suggest you guys buy the software you are using or not talk about it here. EricB I'm glad that you tried to point out that it's illegal copy he's using, but it more sounds like you're trying to help him get the XP Working. Next time simply tell them why it's not working and don't go into a full length explination on how you can bypass the registry keys for programs that use it to determine if you have a legitimate copy.
