What is the difference between Slipstream-ing Windows install and Custom Windows distro? Any info to help auto load programs during Windows XP installation unattended?

    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.

    I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
