Windows XP Pro. WSH Startup script

I need to capture Physical memory of aproximately 200 Windows XP pro machines.  I would like to use a startup script for this.  If the script would collect the Machine name and amount of memory installed then append it to a text file stored on the server would be the ideal way.  I have looked at a few scripts, and I know the variables are available to gather the machine name and amount of memory.  Howver I can't figure out hoe to append it to a text file.

It sounds like you have most of the script worked out. For issues like this it is better that each machine write a file of it's own named by the machine name.  Otherwise you will have multiple entries for each machine (as each is appended the file gets larger and duplicates are NOT elminated) and you will have problems with the file locking on the server.

Instead have each PC write the file MACHINE_NAME.txt to the local drive then copy it to a server share (overwriting automatically any existing file).  To bring all of them together on the server into one file is a simple and quick command that can be run on demand when needed on the server.

I suggest you ask your question again in a script forum if you desire code samples.
