New CDs have legs
I warn my clients about this. Some pay attention, some don't. those that don't have no Windows CDs within a weeks or two. Hiding them in a drawer that isn't locked is the same as leaving them out on the counter. Office is just about as bad.

This leaves me in the position of reinstalling Windows from my own CD-ROM in many cases, but, if Windows will run I can get the customer's reg number with regedit, and if it won't, I boot on a floppy and search the registry with XTree to find it.

New Which is why we have an IS-Library at work
A file cabinet cataloged by an Access database that has the registration keys in it and the location of each software and who checked it out last. The IS Secretary (we keep losing them, they either get moved to the Helpdesk or they quit for a better job) takes care of it and monitors who has what software. CDs do have legs and can walk out of the office, never to be seen again.

Who takes them? I have no idea. Must be the King of the PATATO-People! :)

New Incidentally, were did the NT CDs you are installing at...
home come from? :)

Sorry, I know they're just copies.

New You want the truth?
They came from the MSDN Library, and are backup copies. I am using them to learn how to develop under Windows 2000 and ".NET" as well. They are not on the same network as my work computer, so Microsoft should not have an issue with them.
