I usually never have to re-enter the activation code for XP home when I reinstall, it just installs and runs.

for the future if you refomat, copy the wpa.dbl file to cd first from the windows system 32 folder, and after you reformat, and install all your your drivers, put it back and you won't have to reactivate
that, and just to be safe there is usually a wpa.bak file that i back up too.
