Windows components list (to be used in Unattend file)

I am creating a Windows XP SP2 unattended install... but I need to specify which optional windows components i want installed.

I know i can do this using an unattend file, but i dont know what "Alias" name each component goes by...
  eg.
       minesweepeer = Minesweeper
       msnexplr = Msn Explorer

Does anyone know of, or have such a list? I cannot seem to find any information about it anywhere.

Thanks.

I can get that list from the registry, i just dont know exactly which one corresponds to what component... granted, some are more obvious than others... but its things like "Print services for Unix" and "Network Management Protocol" that i need to programtically install/uninstall...

The more i look into it, the more im starting to realise that maybe there isn't a reference list for this... but it seems stupid for there not to be... Microsoft provided the technology to install windows unattended, so why can't they tell us how!??

i think some of the components has some internal services which aint independent ...

well i think MS does not want you to mess up the installation. although certain features like IIS is not a must but they might not even want you to remove components like indexserv_system...

Sorry for the delay in posting back.

Although i do think a list exists somewhere on this earth, you have still provided me with an answer. So 2,000 points for you my friend.

Hopefully I shall find such a list and update this thread.

Regards,
Dez
