    Nope. You will need three licenses. Newegg.com has a deal for under $300 for three XP Home OEM Program disks.

    Windows XP is one license per PC but can be purchased in multiple packs.

    Some "Office XP" applications can be installed in up to three PC’s per one license, but that depends on Student, Teacher or just the regular versions.

    Correct, You MUST BUY a License for each PC. It's the ONLY way you can do it.
