I recently bought an Imac Leopard and it's possible for an XP OS to be available on it. In addition, I have 2nd Dell XP computer however, the system is becoming shotty. I bought the Dell
from a friend years ago but we don't have the reinstallation CDS. Is it possible to buy New Windows Vista or XP Software and install it on both computers using the same CD; especially for the Dell after I format it and without it's original CDs?

So if I replace my old Dell XP and buy a new computer I can't install the CDs that come with it onto my Mac?

No. It's considered piracy.
