Windows activation key "expired"?*SOLVED*

I just got my new iMac, so I decided to try out Bootcamp and see how running Windows on a Mac works. Everything went smoothly, Windows boots up fine and all the hardware is recognized, but it won't let me activate Windows with the product key that came with my XP disk; it says it's been used too many times. :? Is there anything I can do about this? Thanks a bunch for any help!

    It should say something, somewhere about activating by phone. You just have to call them up, and they'll take you through an activation process.
