Default Newb EULA XP Home Question

I've always bought a new computer from someone like Gateway where you really didn't get full versions of software. But when I built my new system a couple of years ago I bought a full version of Win XP Home.

My question is when I build my new system in a few weeks, can I use that full version of XP that I have even though it's already be reg with MS?

I'm not sure how all the license agreements work.

You can register that product key 3 times, after that you need to call Microsoft or find a different key or use a key from XP on your other machines
