  1. Sorry, I know I shouldn't double post...but I am not getting anyone to answer elsewhere. I didn't realize there was a separate nLite section here on the forum. Please forgive, but I would like an answer if possible.... Hello everyone I just did a slipstream XP Pro + SP2 disk using nLite this weekend, with all hotfixes and security updates + drivers. My disk size grew to 680 MB and I was using a 700 MB CD total capacity. I was wondering, does it make any difference if I do a bootable DVD? Everything I have read about slipstreaming talks about CD's...not a word about whether or not it will
  2. Hello everyone I just did a slipstream XP Pro + SP2 disk using nLite this weekend, with all hotfixes and security updates + drivers.

  3. Hello everyone and thank you for the replies. No intention here to insult anyone at all. So apologies all around. I just wanted to hear some reasons why people continue to use 9X beyond the "old games" reason. I guess if you are satisfied with 9X and want to remain there, all well and good. I just wondered why anyone would stick with it when so much has been done to advance beyond 9X. BTW, I always found it adviseable in '98 to first uninstall the older graphics driver and then re-install a new one. I believe I remember that you can have multiple graphics drivers installed simultaneously
  4. I just thought I would throw this out to the 9X community. I ran Win 98SE perfectly well years ago on an AMD K-6 500 Mhz processor using some off-brand motherboards. I never had a problem with crashes that i could not relate to some other non-AMD problem. It wasn't AMD's fault that vendors built poorly constructed drivers, it was more like, Intel people being bigoted against AMD. I remember that AMD made more sense to me in terms of dollars when it came to price camparisons...at the time, I could buy a 500 Mhz AMD processor for $90 while Intel was charging $350 for it's Pentium III 500 Mhz
  5. Hello everyone . My name is Jim, and I logged on here to get some help with nLite, but I can see there is a lot more to be had here...I spend a lot of time on forums just studying problems and learning answers, more like curiosity than anything else. I have taken note, that humanity wouldn't be at all happy unless there were problems to be solved...which probably means computers were built just to create problems to occupy human space, mind and time...therefore keeping us busy. Just to let you guys know how old I am...I still have my original slide rules from taking physics and chemistry in
  6. Hello everyone. I have built an AMD 6000 X2 proc based computer with an ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe m/b, 2 gigs DDR2 RAM and one single (and only) 500 Gig WD SATA2 drive, which I have connected to SATA1 on the m/b. I have a single full version of Windows XP Home OEM Ver 2002, so I realize I need to do a slipstreamed disk to update to SP2 + a bunch of other things. I discovered nLite on the net and have read about 100 different how-to articles on slipstreaming and nLite. However, every last one of these articles deals with a RAID configuration of one type or another. When it comes down to the expla
