I have Windows XP home edition, and I have the cd of XP SP2. I am interested in slipstreaming (is that the word) them into a new updated cd. Is it better to use the SP2 cd, or download the developers version of SP2 off the internet. I read in a thread on one of these forums that the developers version has more to it - but I don't know what that really means. Any suggestions?

thats not bad, but it doesnt take into account the drivers for your system. i was just perusing the latest maxpc i just got today, and it has an article about this very topic. they go into slipstreaming the raid drivers (if you need them) right onto the cd, so you dont have to hit f6 and have a floppy ready for winxp installs. i have a question regarding this though: are you limited to raid driver, or can you integrate the latest drivers for all of your hardware right onto the install cd? granted, some hardware comes with setup cds that have a host of programs just to drive it, so those 'drivers' are out, but what about simpler things, like printers?

To answer your question, Yes. Open the SP2 disk,(don't auto-run it), and find the XPSP2.exe file. This is the same file that you would download from the microsoft site. From there just follow the instructions as listed in the article from everyone's fav magazine

You've gotten good answers so far but Autostreamer would be worth a look. Automates the process for ya.

I found the free application Nlite to be perfect for slipstreaming XP! Very easy and powerful GUI! You need to check this one out!
