That is a very well put together tutorial HJW! :thumbup

Very nice. I may use some of these ideas when I code the next release of Windows XP PowerPacker. :D

a question...

Are there any issues with any computers displaying graphic menus that you know of? I mean like older computers or something.

It would be awsome if maybe you can help me put together a new boot menu system for powerPacker. ;) I'm sure we could code it in a way where people can easily share themes and stuff.

Your question; very old computers that don't support VGAmode by cdshell will receive an error. I assume you guys are running 'modern' machines nowadays ;).

Coldknife,

you could probably make it an .ISO file and then load into vmware and test.
