so when i create the sysprep.inf file, i can go back and enter the product key code manually under the user data parameter?

Yes, you can add or change any of the parameters manually. It's just a text file. Edit it with notepad or any text editor. If you need more help, I can provide you with an example of the file.

ive got a few books on 2000/xp but but they dont go into detail on how to configure it and set it up or even how to input the key code. i was looking most of the morning on how to set it up. this was my first time doing this.

i do appreciate your help.
