It's often surprising how much these kinds of things lay in the mist.
Martinez, you'll need to read the EULA. Some installation licenses allow for it, some don't.
A standard non-OEM version of Windows XP allows for one PC installation and one secondary installation (implied as a laptop, but I don't know the exact restriction). OEM licenses are much more restricted.
The EULA tells you everything. And, if you're still not sure, call Microsoft. It's not that big of a deal.
