    I'm running windows xp home edition sp1, among other things. I'm having trouble installing sp2. When I read the messages on this board that try to help others with similar problems, I often see the tech experts asking the poster if the poster has a valid or legal copy of windows.

    I'm certain I do; it came preloaded by Dell when I bought the machine.

    But I'm enough of a newbie that I don't know how to prove that. Is there a simple way I could use, say, Start|My Computer and look for and find some entry that confirms that I'm legal?
