    Hi chewie...

    I would say take one of the CD's... Put it in your computer and do a test install. You should be given the option to do so. That way it will not realy install on the hard drive. Then you will be given several chances to put in a licence code. If the code from one book don't work... the other one should. Then match them up and cancel the insalation.

    Someone ells might have a better way though...

    Good luck :)
