Create a temp directory in your root if it is not already there, called c:\temp, Drag the xpsp2 redistributable file there, leave the window open (do this because it makes the path statement shorter)
Start Nlite, click next, then click integrate service pack and create bootable iso, then next. Nlite will ask you for the windows installation files. Put your dell cd in, point to it, Nlite will ask you for a place to store the files temporarily, and give you an option to select or create a new one....I create a new one, c:\temp2.
(this way I can just throw everything out at the end).
Nlite will start copying files...get some coffee.
when it finishes, hit NExt.
Nlite will ask you for the location of the service pack for integration...point it to the c:\temp directory and choose the file. Nlite will extract and slipstream the files.
time for more coffee
Nlite will eventually tell you it is done slipstreaming....click OK, click NExt
It will then ask you to create an isolabel--you can call it anything. (like XPSP2)
Leave the additional attributes as they are, hit next, click Make ISO button, tell it where (desktop), click save. WNlite makes you an iso.
Download the ISOBurner Powertoy for whatever machine you are working on (there is an sp2 and sp1 version)http://isorecorder.a...isorecorder.htm
right click on the ISO you made earlier, choose Burn.
You now have an xp sp2 cd with you can install windows from and not have to mess with adding the service pack
