Open up one of the CDs and go into the i386 folder. Open WINNT.SIF with a text editor. There should be a line that says:


So there's one key.

Download and run Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 1.5 Beta 3 from:


It will tell you the key installed on a particular machine. There's your second key, so you can match CDs to each machine.
