Changing WinXP files

This topic has possibly already been covered, but I just wouldn't know what to search for.

I am aiming to alter a couple of files on my WinXP install disk, saving me the trouble of changing them after installation. I know it can be done, I have seen it, I just don't know where!

When you install XP it checks the files integrity against a list contained in the "Layout.inf" contained in the "i386" folder, and in another file...Does anyone know that other file??

Also, can anyone tell me the meaning of the flags contained in the layout.inf file
ntgrip.sys = 1,,51552,,,,,,3,3
nthelp.chm = 1,,20427,,,,,21,0,0
ntimage.gif = 1,,48794,,,,,2,0,0

(I believe that the middle set of numbers is the file version, backwards! )

I eagerly anticipate your help, many thanks.

p.s. It matters NOT what the files are, they are purely aesthetic!!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
