Re: Microsoft Registration Wizard

The significant paragraph to me is:

"Once a user has provided the required information, the computer creates a
16-character installation ID, which is used to identify a unique
installation. The installation ID does not contain or encode any personal
information. Rather, it contains a signature of the hardware of the
machine on which the user has installed Office 2000. "

In what way will a signature of the hardware be unique, other than through
implementation of Pentium III capability?  --pg
