That would be perfect till I could get Vista.
This will ONLY work if you sister has a XP Home disc. Can not use a XP Pro disc with a Home Serial.
Yes you cn use a Dell OEM disc to install but dont expect all your drivers to be there. The XP discs are catered to Dell for their systems.
The only problem you will run into is if you have activated your dell OEM (Most likely) you will have to call as OEM serials are only good for 1 activation.
