The Same way you installed it on the First one. Microsoft will let you activate the same key a few times before it blocks it as they really don't want you to use the same Key on multiple boxes. They lose money this way. I don't see a problem doing it to 2 home PC's. just don't go giveing your Key to friends. Or go using it to load XP on 30 company machines. That's a bad thing.
