Buy Windows 2000.  That's the CD key - you only get it with a legally obtained copy.  Getting it any other way would be illegal and Experts Exchange members cannot assist you in that.
Hello Whatpole =)

Have u already installed the OS with this disk and trying to reinstall it,,, or is this a Brand New Disk for which u have lost the Key.... ??
Btw most of the Valid Windows OS CDs have the Product Key written on the case.... where did u get this CD from ?? :)

In any case, you have to contact Microsoft Support.
