Please do Right Click>Save as Target after opening the web Page.

Scripts WinRAR & WinZip

Once you have finshed doing the above run the script they are Pauses in it so yu can get your stuff ready and put in the correct folder for the script to work correctly.

When the script runs it copies your Windows XP CD to the hard Drive (same place as you run the script from) and then creates a directory called xpsetup this is where you need to place your stuff. In the xpsetup directory they are sub-folders here is what each one is for.

xpsetup\$$, this is for Iteams you want coping to the Windows dirctory

xpsetup\System32, this is for files to be copied to the System32 folder

xpsetup\Wallpaper, your wallpapers

xpsetup\Themes, your thems

xpsetup\DX9B, DirectX9b

xpsetup\DOTNET Dont Net Framework V1.1

xpsetup\Fonts, Your fonts

xpsetup\WMP9, Windows Media Player 9

xpsetup\MSN6, MSN Messager 6

xpsetup\drivers, LEAVE THIS EMPTY

xpsetup\drivers\001, First set of drivers

xpsetup\drivers\002, second set of drivers

xpsetup\drivers\003, third set of drivers

xpsetup\drivers\004, forth set of drivers

xpsetup\drivers\005, fifth set of drivers

xpsetup\Hotfixes LEAVE THIS EMPTY

xpsetup\Hotfixes\Type1 Type One Hotfixes

xpsetup\Hotfixes\Type2 Type Two hotfixes

xpsetup\Hotfixes\MDAC MDAC Update Only

All you must do is place the stuff in the correct folder, the rest is done for you.

Things you need to remember is that when making the winnt.sif is that your drivers path is going to be drivers\001\;\drivers\002\ and so on. Also when running the Script make sure you have renamed the Service Pack to SP1 or SP2 and the Roll-Up to SR1 they MUST be placed in the root directory of the xpsetup folder.

I will expect all criticum of this script to make it better in anyway, i will also make custom versions for some people BUT i am not going to do that for everyone as i have a life out side this room of mine.

I will update the script as need and also update this post when need, Any Question please just ask.

i couldnt download says there is a outside referrer error or sumthing, so i goto main page and error on page so i cant find link to download, i use flashget and set referrer link to your homepage and file downloads but is corrupted i try 3 more times each time your RAR file is corrupt i have not try the ZIP file.

other than these problems i know this will be an invaluable resource for newbies.

IE gives the following message:

"Internet Explorer could not download users.htm from win-zone.netfirms.com.

The site was not found. Make sure the address is correct, and try again."

I tried to open the URL in my college´s PCs, but even there I get the 110 Connection Timed out error

If I may ask, can you upload the files to somewhere else, such as Yahoo or post the script here and instruct me (or us) to make it executable?

Sorry for being so annoying about this
