    i have been looking into programs like "nlite" which can integrate service packs and such into a winxp install iso. i was thinking much easier it would be to install XP and all the programs i use all at once. like on cd, or DVD that has XP, service packs, hotfixes, office, messenger, adobe, everything i need installed. does anyone know of a program to do this?

    ps. this may need to be put into the "tips and tricks" forum, please move if needed.

    thanks

    no, what i mean is you make the cd using a program. for example, the program nlite. you install nlite and it copies files from your XP disk to the HDD then it gives you the options to take out different programs, customize the install, add service packs so you don't have to install them later, etc. then it makes an ISO which you can burn to cd and install from it. i want to do the same thing only with application like office and such.
