Microsoft published a key-update tool that allows you to update the (invalid) Key of your current Windows to the new one typed on the licence-sticker.

On the German MS-Website there is an overview, but I didn't find it on the english page.

Start the computer from the cd and run setup. If you are asked for the install directory, slect the old one (where Windows is already installed). All existing files will be replaced.
Your personal data in C:\Documents and Settings\Username\My Documents will not be deleted.
If you are asked for a username od password while the installation use the old values! If you do not so vou probably won't be able to access your files.
