Per that's interesting and hope Todd sees.  We were trying to just make the activation work which I've done a thousand times but totally in a Windows world.  The installs I had were OEM installs that came with Dell boxes which sense if not a Dell box will prompt for activation otherwise they don't.   Every time on the Mac Todd experienced input errors on the activation code, it would never let him fully input the code.  We called  the activation support but of course was pretty useless.  Was this somehow a Mac incompatibility betweeen it and the Dell CD's.  Anyhow I use Ghost a lot and that's a thought actually no reason why that wouldnt' work as long as you can boot the Mac with a ghost boot CD.  I've worked with Mac's off and on and now have several in my house and am running on a G4. My kids have Intel Macbooks which will allow me to try bootcamp and experimen t with this.  The other option is not bad as you say the idea of reinstalling every 30 a bit annoying, anyhow thanks re Ghost, will explore.

Boot Camp is so dirt simple that I would consider formatting and re-
installing Windows every 30th day. If only using Mobius and five VST
plug-ins (as I do) it would mean only one hour, and you you could do
it on the side while working with other things. Just swapping CDs
when urged to. Maybe you could us Ghost or something similar to slap
a fully installed XP system, including Mobius and VSTs, over the Boot
Camp partition? Would be cool if that is possible from the Mac side!
Don't know if it is, but I will research it. When I was using only
Windows 98 I had that system on my PCs (four partitions for different
use) and it only took eight minutes to replace a malfunctioning
Bootable  Windows system partition with a fully installed one,
included all applications.
