Automatically Slipstream Windows XP with SP2 and All Post-SP2 Security Hotfixes with a Single Command

I find this article pretty good for making your own WinXP bootable CD updated with the latest patches.

Do try it out and give some comments. :)

I've written the batch file xpsp2.cmd (updated 12-Jul-06) to automatically download and slipstream a
standard Windows XP boot disk with Service Pack 2 and all post-SP2 security hotfixes.

It uses your installed browser to download the updates. I have tested
this with Internet Explorer and Firefox. I'm not sure if Opera or other
browsers will work.

The batch file xpsp2local.cmd (updated 12-Jul-06)will
update the copy of Windows XP that is installed on the computer you run
the command on.
You may wish to do this, if you do not have, or want, the machine you
want to hotfix connected to the internet, or if you are unable to run
Windows Update for some reason
(for example, if Internet Explorer isn't installed, or doesn't work
properly, due to a virus or similar mishap).

To slipstream the hotfixes, and burn the slipstreamed disk, I've created the makefile xpsp2.mak (updated 12-Jul-06). Details on usage below."
