    slipstream XP or just install XP then SP1 ?

    not counting time wise, but performance wise

    don't think there is a diff in performance
    but there are pros & cons for both ways

    slip stream is much tidier

    but installed separately you can roll back easier

    its up to you ;)

    personally I prefer the slip stream method

    :p

    yes, i think the slipstream would be better myself too.. pain to make the cd, but after that its fine

    It makes no difference.. why waste time and a CD slipstraming when you can just slap in a CD-R or CDRW with sp1.

    doing it separately

    you end up with a 200 meg uninstall file :(
    & an extra 200meg dll cache in;
    windows\service pack\i386 :(

    :cool:

    If you have tried you system with sp1 & had no problems then go for it& slipstream. There are links to sites that guide you step by step. Then you can make a nice cover for the cd........that reminds me there is a thread somewhere about that happening. Cd cover & case cover. Must go looking.
