Why does OEMBIOS.exe show more than one OEMBIOS.CAT?

    I have a Dell system that came with a sticker saying "Designed for Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional or Windows ME". However I am running XP with Windows Genuine Advantage Fix. Thinking that I don't have a SLP1.0 bios, I ran the OEMBIOS.EXE and it says:

    F: Dell System OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=63875D1F
    F: Dell System OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=B6F0EEFD
    These oyalty OEM install CD's should preactivate (SLP) on your system...

    Does this mean I have SLP1.0 bios?
    Why does it also show more than one OEMBIOS.CAT with two different CRC?
    (My other XP computer shows 4 different OEMBIOS.CAT instead.)
    Also, which CRC do I download from OEMBIOS.NET?

    Thank you..

    oemscan only reports any possible slp crc. my hp-pavilion also shows 2 sets of crc (hewlett packard & hp-pavilion). i can only pre-activate with hp-pavilion.
    try OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=B6F0EEFD
    Dell System OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=63875D1F (obsolete, i believe)

    my abit sg-80 reports shuttle, and it did pre-activated without bios mod
