instead of doing it over the internet select toll-free calling and use that. then a rep will give u a new cd key as long as u have the xp cd with u since u need the code on the cd

why not? do you get an error? what screen are you stuck on?

on the activation screen look for a skip button in the corner.

i'll look for that skip button when i get home from work and post the results
