Unless it has changed since my last experiment, the dell oem xp disk is not suitable for slipstreaming. It will bluescreen or halt mid install and ask for files that are not available.
For 6.99 plus shipping, Dell will send you a oem xp pro sp3 install disk or a xp home sp2 disk.
Dell did ship quite a few xp service pack NONE oem disks with new computers (I have one) and the one I have required service pack 1a to be installed first before sp2 or sp3 could be installed.
The version of IE on the early Dell disks can't even read the current windows update page and you have to download and install IE 6.x.
sp1a and how to tell for sure which version you currently have:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en
sp3 download suitable for burning to cd to install on any system with sp1, sp1a or above:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en
I don't remember if the sp3 install updates IE but I think it might.
