If someone has a retail version of XP Pro. Then they build a new pc. Since
the origanal pc has been activated can that license be on both pcs?

No. You need to purchase another license for the second
installation on a different PC.

In case you overlooked it:

On the back of the Windows XP box, please read the statement­:

"For installation and use on one computer"
(see License Agreement for license terms).


Go to Start >Run box type: WINVER , and hit enter. Then c­lick on the
"End-User License Agreement" and read it. Your answer
lies in that agreement.


Direct quote from the EULA:


1. GRANT OF LICENSE.
Microsoft grants you the following rights provided that
you comply with all terms and conditions of this EULA:


1.1 Installation and use. You may install, use, access,
display and run one copy of the Software on a single
computer.....


You can also open XP's "Help and Support" and type: EULA
and hit enter. Click on "Questions and answers about the EU­LA".
