yes it was copied form some one, why does it matter if it starts with that serial number?

Can I get around it at all?

I will mail you some files that get you around the problem. However be careful with the install of SP1 as it can bite you in ways you may not expect. ie when asked if you want to create uninstall backup say yes.

Hi Tim

Thank you very much for the files, Should i re format and do a clean install? What do you mean be wary of it? I don't foresee any problems, do you?

Anyways, as for the files, is it just a key generator, so i just re install win xp pro, use the generated cd key, and then i wont get stopped when i tr to upgrade to sp1?

thanks for your time!

The key generator allows you to change the code without a reinstall. SP1 has been known to cause such problems as Office not working, random BSoD crashes, HTML not working etc. This is not the case for all installations so that is why I suggest doing the install but keeping the uninstall until you are satisfied that it all works.
