Hi...We are about to rollout the XP pro. As well known, MS is very restrict on the XP license now. By default, all our computers come with an OEM XP pro license, We used to use Ghost image, and was told that it is only good for XP Volume License.

We then turn to use RIS and/or Sysprep.
Could any body confirm that:
1) if RIS (RIPrep) is good for OEM license?
2) if Sysprep is good for OEM license?
3) What is the difference between RIPrep and Sysprep?
4) if the OEM license = Volume License?
