What is the exact message you get when trying to activate?
Have you chosen to activate by telephone yet?

Is this the SP2 update CD? If yes, there is no product code.

If you threw away the retail key for Windows XP with Sp2, you might be able
to contact MS and request a new key. You will need to provide proof of
purchase of their Retail kit and not OEM versions.
