That's a bit of a loaded question really. I would recommend making two CDs - 1 being your Windows XP boot disc that is bootable and installs your OS, hotfixes/drivers etc (slipstreaming is good!). Second disc could be for your apps, all you need to do is pretty much code out the page with links to the files on CD, create an autorun.inf that points to the html file and you are good to go.

I know that's vague, but I would recommend asking more specific questions individually.

nlite is a good option.



Or get on MS connect and you might be able to get a copy of a OOBE (out of box experiance) OS configurator.

OOBE for the later products and XP supports quite a bit of integrated software installation options. More if you have the proper system to run the config on.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
