Deepak, Joe, Jack  and I will discuss slipstreaming Windows XP with SP1.

Deepak will discuss some issues regarding the Hardware Abstraction Layer, or HAL and a slipstreamed CD.  This becomes especially important for hard drives of over 131 GB.

Before you slipstream Windows XP make sure that you don't already have a newer CD from Microsoft that already includes SP1.

I used these three links to make a bootable Windows XP CD using Easy CD Creator 5:
