Finally, early this morning I was able to slipstream SP2 into my OEM version of XP pro. I used Nlite and it worked after a couple of tweaks. Anyway, this is the tree I ended up with and it is 724 megabytes. Since this is OEM, any idea what I can delete to make it smaller. I haven't even started with the Bart plugins yet. Thanks to those that handheld me through this process. I really feel the problems encountered earlier was because of my Gateway OEM versio of XP that came with the computer. Nlite asks you when you run it if you want it to remove the hotfixes that may keep you from successfully slipstreaming it.
