    Depends.

    If it's a recovery DVD...which would be used for restoration of your hard drive, then no.

    If it's a full version DVD...all you need is a legit key to install it on the second machine. OEM versions are tied to the system (or part) they came with...so basically, your Dell OEM DVD isn't supposed to be used to install on any other computer.
