Illegal and against Microsoft's Eula.
You cannot use the same key on two systems at the same time.

As rshaffer has explained, you may not install the same copy of XP on two different PCs with the same key simultaneously. These aren't arbitrary rules we're setting forth; we're enforcing the EULA for Microsoft's product. He's offered you a solution for getting a new copy of XP for the Dell, which is to contact Dell and ask for a new disk. Post #9 explains this quite well. Once you do that, you can indeed download all the drivers from their site; if you enter the service tag, they'll even tell you which ones are appropriate for the system. We will not help you bypass this issue in any way; we will, however, help you do this legally. It's your choice.
