Windows vista business OEMAct key. Use on regular cd?

Hello all, a friend has given me a Dell laptop to reformat. On the back it has a windows vista business cd key. It says "windows vista business OEMAct".

Can I use this key with a regular cd for windows vista business?

Or do I have to use a Dell cd?

What is going to be the best way for me to get a fresh copy of vista on this computer?

Thanks for the help everyone.
