I installed XP again on my computer and reinstalled iTunes and reauthroized my account and it said something like "You have used 3 out of 5 authorizations"

and I just installed Vista on the same PC now and want to reauthorize itunes but I don't want it to use a 4th authorization as if it was some 4th different PC..

When you get to five authorisations, you can go into your itunes account and "deauthorise all" machines. Beware though, as you can only do this once a year.

And, if you have to do this again (reinstall the OS), make sure you deauthorize that machine before resintalling. Then after reinstalling you can reauthorize, and no authorizations get wasted/used up.
