Re: instructions for creating and using a Windows XP unatended floppy disk

First, you go to:
www.jfwlite.com
and click on the programs link.  then, download the Windows XP unattended 
kit.  Save it to your Desktop.  This is a .zip folder from which you must 
extract the files.  What you open in Notepad is a file called
Nd Want.sif.  This is the special file you put your personal information in 
and then use control S to save the changes and follow the rest of the 
instructions.  As you will gather, this is not a program which has an 
installer.  It's a collection of files you use to get the job done.  Good 
luck.

Sincerely Yours,

The Constantly BAREFOOTED

Hey Jack or Teril, can you clarify some things? So do I go to
www.jfwlite.com and download this unattended install programs for windows xp
home right? Then do I install this unattended program or extract files? I am
confused at this point. I still not sure what do I open in note pad, and how
do I know what to type in note pad. Also Jack can you clarify your below
post about deleting some sort of file?

>>I would just emphasize one point before pasting these instructions.  This

>> you'll see to files located in it.  These files are:
>> ND Winnt.sif and Winnt.bat.  Now, here are the instructions exactly as

>>
>> This is the instructions for creating a unattended setup for xp that uses
>> a
>> floppy and an XP setup CD; this one assumes your sound card drivers are

>>
>> *Warning, this answer file is for XP only.  It has to be the full install
>> CD. It will not work with an upgrade CD either; it must be the full

>> CD.
>>
>> *Warning, this will completely wipe out your C drive and repartition it.
>>
>> *Warning, if you have your hard drive partitioned off into more than one
>> partition it will delete all partitions and create one large partition.
>>
>> *Warning, remove your jaws key from your hard drive before using this

>> file.
>>
>> *Warning, back up all your data before using this answer file because

>> C
>> drive will be completely wiped out, repartitioned and formatted.
>>
>> Instructions:
>>
>> Part 1
>>
>>  1.. Open the ND Winnt.sif file with note pad and replace all the X's
>> with
>> your personal information then press Control plus S to save the changes.
>>  2.. Now rename ND Winnt.sif to Winnt.sif.
>>  3.. You can also change your home Paige and display properties if you

>>  4.. Format a 3 1 half floppy and copy the Winnt.sif file you just

>> and the Winnt.bat file on to the newly formatted floppy disk.
>>  5.. Part 2, how to use:
>> 1. If your bios are not already set to boot from CD you will need sighted
>> assistance to set this in your bios.  It should be CD, floppy, then hard
>> drive. This will only need to be done once.  Consult your computers
>> documentation for instructions because it is different on different
>> computers.
>>
>> 2.  Insert your XP CD into your CD rom drive and the floppy you just
>> created
>> into your floppy drive.
>>
>> 3.  Now shut down your computer completely.
>>
>> 4.  Restart your computer with your XP CD and the floppy you created in
>> their perspective drives.
>>
>> 5.  This is important; the XP CD puts up a screen when the computer is
>> started with it in the CD drive that says press any key to boot from the
>> CD.
>> We can't see this screen, but we know it is there so start tapping your
>> space bar repeatedly, not fast but in about one second intervals until
>> you
>> hear the CD start turning and the floppy grab.  It will not hurt if you
>> do
>> this for to long, it is better to long than to short because if it does
>> not
>> boot from the CD set up will go directly to the floppy and hang there.
>> If
>> it does not take the first time, turn off your computer and start over.
>>
>> 6.  Now it will start the setup and pull the information such as the CD
>> key
>> etc. off of the floppy.  The XP music will start playing when it is done.
>>
>> 7. After you hear the music hit the windows key plus the letter U to
>> bring
>> up the utility manager. This will also bring up narrator.  If you get
>> stuck
>> in the utility manager and cannot close it, hit alt plus F4 until it
>> closes.
>>
>> 8.  Now alt tab till you get to the XP startup screen and enter your name
