I have completed my build that I want to Sysprep using Setup Manager to create the fully automated installation. But in looking around the only way to have it completely automated the articles I have read want me to use a Distribution Share that I don't need to use. I just want to run setup manager to create the fully automated answer file then sysprep the I will image the workstation so when I install the image it will be syspreped and the only info I need to put in is the workstation name, or nothing at all and I can change the name later. I have downloaded the XP Pro SP2 Deployment Tools so I have the latest files.

Thanks in advance for the help.

No need for a Distribution Share, just need:
factory.exe
Sysprep.exe
Sysprep.inf
Setupcl.exe

These files need to be saved in the %SystemDrive%\Sysprep\ directory on the machine to be imaged.

That's it basically.

Cheers
