Are you offering to teach people how to slipstream? Because I'd actually like to get SP1 into my copy.
That's the idea...and actually, it works very well. I've done it as well and it makes life so much easier. I still have to use the Windows Update cause they have released 11 HotFixes now to SP2!!!! BUT, I don't have to spend HOURS on there downloading SP2.
There are several ways to do it, you can follow the instructions on the site at the elder geeks site or any of the others I'll list, but the easiest is one called AutoStreamer
The way *I* did it was this way:
Start with this one:
Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows: Slipstreaming Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2)
Go to the end of step 4.
Then move over to this one(I had to use two cause I don't have Roxio 5 or 6 and 7 can NOT be used)
Slipstreaming Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Create Bootable CD - HelpWithWindows.com
And pick up where is starts with:
Next, start Nero Burning ROM, and choose CD-ROM (Boot) in the New Compilation window.
There are also these guides:
