    Where can I find information about installing OEM version of Windows
    on computers I build for other people?
    Do I contact Microsoft directly?
    There are other software programs that I am also thinking of using for
    backup purposes, like Drive Image, or Maybe Norton Ghost. I don't know
    if there was some kind of resource that explained basically how
    arrangement like these between computer shops and the software
    manufacturers worked and took some of the guesswork out of the
    process.
    THanx in advance.

    Just buy a OEM version and install it on the customer's machine. There's no
    need to contact MS. They are not going to give you a special price unless
    you buy a lot of licenses.
