What makes you think that you neeed to get a change of license just 
because you change your computer?  I have never had any problem 
installing Mathematica to a new Mac.  I know that the Linux version has 
machine-specific licenses but I never heard of such a thing on the Mac 
(although I assume this is going to change with that OSX thing).  As 
long as you keep using Mac OS 9 rather than OSX, you shouldn't have to 
upgrade Mathematica.
