Hmmkay: Odd. Everything up through w2ksp51.7z.001 downloaded perfectly from mediafire, but .002 and .003 produced consistently mismatched checksums and generated numerous "file broken" errors upon attempted decompression. They were fine, however, coming from e-snips. The list of hotfixes destined for said folder at the front of this topic differs somewhat (by maybe 5 additional items) from the A and B archives currently downloaded: Do I assume correctly that the archives' contents supersede the list, and that what they lack is intentional?
tEd:P started following Up-to-date Windows 2000 universal install media creation guide
Effing brilliant! After months of related Googling, I think this may be the resource/guide that finally puts me over the top, both in terms of a comprehensive Win2K installation that I can have confidence in and using nLite to make it jump through the hoops I want... Not that I expect the first time to be the charm: I'm sure I'll be back with questions shortly, but this is great to find nonetheless.
