If you ever wanted to have a Windows XP installation disk automatically enter your name, product key, regional settings, etc as well as silently installing all of your applications, drivers, hotfixes, updates, settings and registry tweaks, then you might be interested in this guide:

There is also an excellent support forum with info/tips about making unattended CDs.

It's also possible to make multi-OS CDs/DVDs or say an XP installation CD wich includes WinPE/BartPE.

Making a customized cd which installs all of your apps and sets up windows exactly as you want does take some work. It's not something you can throw together in an hour, so be prepared. :)

An excellent utility for slip-streaming service packs and hotfixes/updates into an original xp distribution.

Have fun

that is really useful for me right now, cause I am going to have to install XP on 30 computers at school, and I bet you I will be the only one that does it and goes to take a smoke brake about 15 minutes later

A basic unattended installation should be a snap. If you can set up a network file share which contains the XP source files, the installation will be much less tedious.

Good luck with that. :)

Thanks ANTO. I wish I had my own network to fool around with. As it is, I only have my one computer at home. To be honest, I don't really have a need for a network. It would be fun though. :)
