slipstreaming generally means including SP's and updates and drivers into the standard windows XP CD. Custom can include more things, like which windows components should be left out or included etc. A very good utility is nliteos.

I have researched nliteos and looked around the program for support on 3rd party programs, I noticed they have a few on the site available. But how would I include Photoshop and some other large programs in the install. I have a client that crashes his PC often and would like it make an easy install procedure.

If he crashes his PC often, just use an imaging software and image his PC once everything is installed, Then burn those images to DVD's. I suggest using bootit-ng for that.
