WinXP install on an iMac: OEM vs Full Retail Boxed versions

I want to install WinXP on my new iMac DuoCore. Is there a difference between using an OEM install disk (legal original) and a full boxed retail install disk?

There's a big difference in price (yes, *gasp* I'm going to pay for it!), and if I can use an OEM version, I will.
Anyone had any problems (fatal problems, please, not general new-installation-type problems) installing from an OEM disk?
thanks for any insight.
