I have a little experience slipstreaming XP installation cds and want to create a slipstream 98 installation CD.  Any advice on how to proceed if it can be done at all?

Legal Issues

Please note that while you can use the streamlining method to create an updated version of your own Windows XP CD with Service Pack 2 installed, this does not give you the legal right to use it on more than one machine at a time. A Windows XP license can still only be used on a single system at a time, unless you are using a volume license. OEM licenses (versions of Windows pre-installed on assembled computers) are considered to apply only to the computer they are first installed on, and may not be transferred to other systems. Be aware of these issues when preparing and creating your new CD. For a more in-depth look at the subject, see our article on Legally Copying Software.

Thank you for your response.  However, I already have basic knowledge of creating a slipstreamed XP installation.  What I am curious about is if a 98SE installation can be slipstreamed.

 

I currently have two installation disks described below that I want to combine:

 

1:  The original 98SE installation cd

 

2:  A cd I created with some security patches and OS specific programs (media player, DirectX, etc).

 

What I want to do is create a 98SE installation CD that will not only install 98SE but also the security patches, media player, drivers, etc.

Sorry!  Being at school is very distracting!  I failed to see Google had changed my search by changing the results.

Try this:
