I would say I know a good bit about computers so feel silly for asking such a question, but here it goes.

I have slipstreamed SP2 into my XP. I'm trying to burn a bootable CD of my slipstreamed OS. I have to enter a name for the Volume Label according to my version of XP. The two choices I have for XP home are "Windows XP Home" and "Windows XP Home OEM". I'm not sure which one I should use.

I bought a compaq computer back in like 97 I think. I had a certificate for a free upgrade to the new OS. I mailed it off and got my XP CD through the mail several months later. How can I tell if I have the OEM version?

I would appreciate it if you can help me. :tazz:
