There was a discussion about this kind of stuff a while back.
Here's the thread:
Basically if it says XP Home on the side an XP Home OEM disk will work, Dell branded or not. Obviously if it's Pro you need a Pro OEM disk. Retail disks will not work with an OEM key. In that thread I showed everyone how to tell if their disk was OEM or retail.
