Windows XP registration questions?

I am not pirating, or making illeagle copies.

I can download legit copies of XP from Microsoft MSDN.

My question is, if I download the software once and record the *.iso to a CD, can I use that single disk with multiple codes?

Then I don't need multiple copies, just record which number/code goes with each PC.

I guess secondly, is that all I need to do is record the *.iso onto the CD, or is there something I need to do to decode the file before recording?

i think the codes changed between the different releases

RTM, SP1 and SP2. i had some trouble using an RTM code on a CD with SP2 on it

when you record the CD, just do the burn image option to make a real bootable CD

But if the releases are the same, then multiple codes will work with the same CD.

And the burn image option, is that in the Windows program (rt click -> send to CD) options?
