I slipstreamed my XP pro and I have everything backed up. If not its ok because I want to put a fresh install on as much as possible. Anyway Would it be practical to extract my program files from my (Norton Ghost Image) in D:\ drive back into C:\ drive after I install XPSP2 ? Would this create any conflicts with programs. Was coding changed that much with SP2 that it would effect backed up program files, or just security related issues. .... not very practical at all. (registry files DA!) Although some programs didn't need to be reinstalled some did. The slipstream went well and I'm enjoying some of the features. Going back through the great famous book of OSNN tweaks.
