Default Windows XP OEM Disclaimer

Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows XP Home With SP2B 1 Pack - OEM
Disclaimer - Qualifying proof of purchase must be recent receipts showing the purchase of a mother board, hard drive, RAM and a CPU. The components can be on multiple receipts; not necessarily all on one receipt nor on the same receipt as the qualifying Windows XP/Office 2003 that you purchased.

What does that mean? You need all the recipts, but for what?

if you buy it you should not have to worry about it....
typically, newegg would have to ship you a freebie piece of cheap pc accessory to validate the oem OS sale...

but not sure they do that, lol....even little cable ties count

Just know your pc stuff when you buy OEM...I am assuming you do...and will go no further
