I'm helping a friend at his small office. He needs to use Windows 2k3
for a specific application. I have a xen server setup so we can run a
couple linux servers to do some other tasks. 

To save money he picked up Windows 2k3, but it's an OEM System Builder
Pack. Like any agreement, reading it is very confusing, so I'm afraid to
crack it open. Anyone know if I can install and activate this ok in a
domU? And, is it legal to do this way?

Any suggestions are appreciated.
