    Hi Q,

    Just do a google search on "slipstreaming SP1". There are dozens of really good, easy guides available out there on how do use Nero and/or EZ CD Creator to create a slipstreamed XPcd

    1. Copy the XP CD to C:\XPCD
    2. Copy the SP1 to C:\
    3. Rename it to sp1
    4. Go to Start>Run and type C:\sp1.exe -x
    5. Choose the location C:\sp1 for the Extracting
    6. After the extracting go to Start>Run and type
    C:\sp1\update\update.exe -S:C:\XPCD

    and that's all, Now you got an updated XP ready to install burn it and install.
