    Not really as clear as I would like it to be Texcritter! it assumes prior knowledge about certain things I don't know a lot about.

    Thank you for taking the trouble to reply.

    Hi stapp,

    After having XP Pro SP2 for sometime, it occurs that in addition to what is on the original CD for it, that a lot of Windows Updates have been added - so, the best approach is to slipstream a CD with everything up-to-date on it in order to not have to reapply all of the Windows Updates.

    Here are some links with regard to slipstreaming and a freeware tool to help:

    The UBCD for Windows is a great way to make a functional, Windows environment that runs entirely from the CD.
