Does this sound Doable?

Ive got 98 and use it for games, I just built my friend a gaming system and he needs to use xp for his video card, If i buy the xp upgrade for him and use my 98 to upgrade from, if i buy another xp upgrade can i use my 98 again to load the 2nd xp on another system. I would be buying it 2 times so i dont see any infringement being done. The only reason im asking is the dam Product Activation crap that M$ uses. Thanks....

You can do it sure.

It wouldn't be right. Technically you need to have 2 copies of Win98. That's why you're getting the upgrade cheaper.

If you only have one copy of 98 then you can only buy one upgrade and one full version

And just remember:

It should be a felony, Stealing is wrong no matter how someone tries to justify it.
