Need some clarification on constructing a server - what about my CD key? I have a spare box that meets all the published requirements and bandwidth to match so I decided to try my hand at hosting my own Windows dedicated server. I have plenty of resources at hand to get it set up but one question that I cant seem to get answered by my reading is... what about my CD key?

As the machine is right here next to me, I have the ability to simply drop in the CD's and install the game, but if I use my CD key that is in use on this machine that I use for game play, will I create any headaches for myself? I'd hate to set up a server and try to join it just to discover that the CD key is in use. That would suck. My guess is no because I will be using the dedicated server .EXE, but a little reassurance would help.

Thanks in advance.
