Ensure your Caps Lock key is in the correct position (usually OFF) and that
you are indeed typing the right key....

S and 5 look very much alike. So do G and 6.. etc etc

If you are 100% sure you have entered the correct code - perhaps even had
someone else enter it/read it off to you while you enter it, etc - then you
have a bad CD Key.

Contact those you purchased this copy of Windows XP from.

You need to examine the Product Key very carefully. It's awfully
easy to mistake a "B" for an "8," a "G" for a "6," an "S" for a "5," or
a "Q" for a "0" or "O." Fortunately, Microsoft had the good sense to
leave the "1's," "I's," "O's," and "0's" out of the equation. Also, be
sure that your <CapsLock> is _off_ while entering the Product Key --
this isn't supposed to make a difference, but I've seen it do so, on
rare occasions.
