goto the command prompt, and run setup from the command propt as apposed using the boot disk to auto install.

then goto the cdrom drive: and type:

CD:/setup /?

this will give you a list of components to turn off. for example you can remove the memor,registry,billboard etc,


so it will be for example :

CD:/setup.exe /op1 /op2 /op3 /op4

this will skip it and continue.
