Hi Sharath,

I'm using XP Iso Builder for this.
http://www.winfuture.de/xpisobuilder3
It's also in English.
I currently build my XP Installation CD including Firefox, Office 2003, Patches, Settings etc with this program.
For Office 2003 unattended Installation you/ll also need the Office Resource Kit which is available at Microsoft.

Regards,
Sebastian

Have you seen this site before? http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/46/.  It has a ton of information on unattended installs of the OS and ways to slipstream updates and add apps to the installer.

You can create a unattended-File (.MST) with the Office Resource-Kit
Then you start setup with parameter "transforms=xyz.MST"
And you can take a look at this Page where everything is written for unattended Office Installations:: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ork2003/HA011401941033.aspx

Hi Sharath,

As said before I use the XP Iso Builder where I can add several software to install after Windows is installed.
I only have to put the Office-Files and the .mst there and add the transforms-parameter for setup.exe and everything is fine. Also works with ServicePack 3 for Office 2003...

Regards,
Sebastian

Windows Vista unattended Installation is something I'll work on later....
But I think you should take a look at this Windows Automated Installation Kit:
