If its a 329MB file (routghly) then that is the file you want.

In order to slipstream you need to copy the server files off the CD to your pc. Run the upsate on the share and then burn a new windows server disk.

Has mor einformation.

Grabbing a copy of N-Lite of http://www.nliteos.com/ will greatly speed up the process as it will allow you to put other drivers on you need choose the service pack locations, customise the installation and then create a nice ISO for you ready to burn.

Rename the file you have.  There is no such file as W23SP1.exe.
