I have learn that is it possible to slipstream service packs into windows 2000 and XP and create unattended installations as well. I learned how to do this with MSFN's Guide http://unattended.msfn.org This guide was written for windows XP, I would like to know if it is possible to

1)Slipstream Service Packs (Service pack 4) into windows 2000
2)Create an unnatended installation of Windows 2000 Professional
3)Be able to install programs on first boot of installation like in MSFN's Guide through running a batch file and executing different programs.

Are all of the three above things possible and if so does the 3rd point work for Windows 2000 exactly like it works for Windows XP?

Thanks,

Adam

1) yes.
2) yes.  Use Setup Manager to create the Unattended installation file.
3) yes.  Use Setup Manager to add commands to run after the mini-setup wizard finishes using a cmdlines.txt file.

1) http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;262839&Product=win2000
2) & 3) http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;249149&Product=win2000  - using the hotfix premise, you can script application installs too.

Hope these help.
