Reinstalling Win98

Although too late to do anything, I had to reinstall win98 without my real product ID number.  This was because the manual for the program was at home and I am at school far away.  I had to 'barrow' a friends product number and feel bad about this.  I know this is illegal and would like to fix the number when I obtain the real number from home.  Is this possible (Without another reinstallation)?  Can I encounter problems aside from legal issues because of this? Finally, any recommendations?
Thanks

Run RegEdit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\

You can change the Reg number there... make sure it is in the same format as is there already.
