My friend came to me with his Dell Latitute XT It was running on Vista and the touch tablet was working just fine. For some reason he was being asked to renew the product key. Well he did not have one and told me to install XP on it. My question is does the touch tablet work if system running XP or does it have to be Vista?

It can run Windows XP Tablet Edition for sure. I am not aware of it being able to run regular Home or Pro XP. However, the following site has XP Tablet drivers.

Ok looks like I got it working. Now I can seem to get a onscreen keyboard to come up. I saw it had one before i installed XP. The one under Start>Programs>Accessories>Accessibility is just too small.
