It sounds like you are part way through the install, & you are at the part where is says Activate windows.

I think you can skip this & when you have completed the install, you have 30 days to activate.

I suspect your network card drivers have not been installed, that is why you can't activate.

More information is required.

Is this a new installation on new hardware?

Or an upgrade from an older OS?

Do you have a SATA drive?

Does your copy of WinXP contain at least SP1?

What type of internet connection do you have available?
