If you are referring to a message you got when starting your computer, that is due to your computer having an invalid key (not one given by Microsoft). When XP first came out, lots of "discount" computer sellers were illegally putting XP on computers with fake keys. Most likely you have one of those. You can get a free key from Microsoft if you can prove you bought the operating system, and where you bought it from. Microsoft will take that information and go after the place you bought it from if they're still in business. Otherwise, they do have an option to buy a legal copy.

Free repair manuel ?

No such thing. However, some public libraries do offer online access to professional shop manuals. But the car makers have cracked down big time on counterfeit manuals online.

I have a ford f-250 6.0

I suggest you Web search your term, "2005 Ford 6.0L EGR delete kit" and "2005 Ford 6.0L California cylinder heads". If you plan on using the truck in California, it will need to be Certified for California Emissions. This may be why the truck was cheap.

The truck can be used in other States. Some States do not have Emissions testing. Because of California Emissions equipment, many people view these Vehicles as inferior. They often do not perform as well daily, and durability may be compromised because of the added California Emissions hardware(Software too).

Try Rock Auto, call them about your situation. Used heads from wrecked trucks can work too. can be helpful.

Plan to replace left head gasket on a 1998 4.0 litre SOHC engine. Any advice/guidance

Yes, the head gasket in NOT the cause, but rather the victim. Head must be flycut or milled, or you will have failure again, pretty fast.

Jaguar X-Type Brake Pads

The main brand names on my side of the Atlantic are Bendix, Bosch, Mintex, Ferodo, Textar, Lucas, Roulunds and EBC and I regularly use them all. Wagner and Akebono are less well known over here which is why my initial response mentioned that the country you're in makes a difference. EBC are not a budget option though as they sell Greenstuff pads which are an upgrade option as they're harder and less prone to brake fade (but they do dramatically increase disc/rotor wear). All are good so I usually buy the cheapest (German-manufactured Textar are frequently cheapest, and unlike some other brand names actually DO manufacture what they stick into their boxes), but the most important thing is to buy from a reputable supplier as the market is awash with Chinese (and sometimes Indian) counterfeits.
Reputable suppliers usually buy their stock from within established manufacturer supply chains, plenty of smaller independent shops and many auction-type website traders do not so you can easily end up with dangerously sub-standard pads which simply do not work reliably or safely. Counterfeits can even make it into the regular supply chain, but the chances are far lower than when you buy from unknown sources. Note that those who sell counterfeits often do not know that they're selling fakes.
Jaguar main dealers will always have the safest supplies and are not always the most expensive so don't automatically assume that they're going to be pricey. There's always room to haggle as well as main dealers usually have retail and trade prices: once you have asked for a discount,and been refused then you point out that you can buy elsewhere; many dealers prefer to sell to a retail customer at a trade discount rather than seeing your dollars leave the door.
