Hi,

How can I install Windows XP using the unattended installation method from a CD?

I am following some old instructions that says to run the setup manager in XP cd, rename the resultant unattend.txt to winnt.sif, save winnt.sif to a floppy (who uses floppies anymore?) and then start up the computer with windows xp installation CD and then put in the floppy disk and it will install for itself. Since I don't have a floppy disk, how can I do this?
