Hi Trapper,
I installed the bios update. It did slow down the cd boot up time, but still no go.
So, I noticed I had a 52x drive in an old computer that is not connected, so I swapped drives. Now it boots just fine. Before, the cd light would just blink once, now it blinks mucho and it boots the cds.

Hi Trapper,
Oh, Ok. Yes, when xp boots with a cd, or ay way, even hard drive, there
are
supposed to be three files in the route directory. Ntldr, ntdetect.com and
boot.ini, I think. You can mostly just copy the ones from your hard drive
c:
directory if you need them to build a boot cd. These files are present on
the
boot cd's I've made so far. I've made several different ones and none
work. I
need to try them on some other computers.
When you make a slipstreamed xpsp2 cd, these files are copied right off
the
original xp cd for the new xpsp2 cd.
