Before going further, let me assure everybody that I did read --twice-- Chad Mockensturm's Slipstreaming Windows XP To Create a Bootable Windows XP CD or DVD guide. But I am a novice with ambitious plans and have some questions...

I have a genuine copy of Windows XP Professional (32-bit version) with Service Pack 3 already on it. What I would like to do is integrate my XP Pro SP3 disk with all _post-SP3_ security updates, hotfixes, patches (or whatever they are called!) into a slipstreamed, bootable DVD. In addition, I would also like to throw in Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (because I am on dial-up and it takes me 18 straight hours to download it!), Internet Explorer 7 (and all its corresponding patches, etc.) --and Windows Media Player 11 too!

I believe that I have successfully downloaded all the patches, .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, IE 7, and WMP 11 from Microsoft, and here are my questions:

1) Is what I have outlined above doable?
2) If yes, is there a guide posted somewhere that tells me how to do it?
3) How do I find out for sure that I have all post-SP3 security updates, hotfixes, patches etc.? (Other than re-installing Windows Pro SP3 and running Windows Update to check, of course!)
4) How do I integrate .NET Framework 3.5 SP-1, Internet Explorer 7 (and all its patches), and Windows Media Player 11 to all this?

Thanks for any advice.

IE 7 is old and so many patches are needed for it. Why not try newer IE8?

To integrate all patches use nLite (http://www.nliteos.com/)

On the same website, you would be able to find all the information you need to integrate any software you want. Just search.

If you want in depth knowledge of unattended Windows installation then best guide is http://unattended.msfn.org/
