Well there are too options here

1. Aqquire a real copy of windows XP and use that or

2. Set up your laptop you want and use some 3rd party software to make a new backup image (after adding sp2 into your current setup) and use thats as your new restore Disc

ojojpogee, your problem is that the recovery disk is not an unattended installation, it is a ghost image of your hard drive that puts everything back to factory settings.

So you have 2 options indeed - create your own unattended XP setup from a Windows XP cd, or create your own ghost image.

To create your ghost image, you need to do a fresh reinstall on your computer, add as many applications as you like and change the settings you wish, and then create a snapshot with ghost software (like Norton Ghost, dunno which one is the best). Then burn that image to a bootable cd, also with the Ghost soft, and you have a new recovery dvd.
