    The hd died on my Dell D600. I'm buying another hd. I don't have the
    reinstallation cd for the D600 but I have them for my Dell Dimension 2400
    desktop unit. Can I use the Dimension 2400 xp reinstall cd & enter the xp
    key found on the D600?

    Actually it depends
    is it a recovery CD or a OS CD
    Some or most Recovery CD's are tied to the Specific Model
