linux xp need to activate


Hi all i'm new here and to linux-xp
i've installed the english version i had gotten from a link posted on the forums but it seems it's only good for 99 reboots it calls for activation but i've gotten no serial number in the distro i downloaded. is this only a trial version or is there a key someplace that i'm missing
Thanks in advance for any and all help

Why did you choose a distro like that :-)

if you are really new to "Linux" check out one of those "user-freindly" linux distros like mandriva. Even though I hate it(bloated and rpms suck) you you find it easy to use.

The distro appears to be Russian, so I would guess that there is no English site. Babelfish does a pretty good job of it - http://world.altavista.com/

I googled for ""Linux XP" English" and one of the first few hits was linux-xp.com, which says, "We got many requests for English version of Linux XP Desktop and for English version of website. Both will be done soon.". It also says, "English web site will be opened simultaneously with launching new Linux XP Desktop 2006 Service Release 1", though no dates are given.
