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

Shouldn't all users have the same email signature?

You wouldn't let your users design their own business cards, would you? So, why do you let them design their own email signatures? Think of the damage they could be doing to your brand reputation! Choose the easy way to manage set up and add email signatures for all users.

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:
