Making a Windows XP Recovery CD.

I'm trying to make a Windows XP recovery CD, and just can't get it to work.  This is what I am doing (among other methods tried).

1.  Copy XP installation.  Clear the checkmark to delete the image when done.  Alternately, I also tried just making an ISO image from the CD.
2.  Use WinISO to edit the ISO image and replace our oembios files, and add unattend.txt and winnt.sif (both same content)
3.  Burn the image using ISO option in Nero.

It won't boot up.  What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
