    what you need is nlite ..
    go to
    Code:
    www.nliteos.com
    .. Use nlite to reduce the unrequired files from installtion
    n tweak it to best possible way, Dont delete too much ..

    &

    always takes a backup using Ghost/Acronis true image
    .. to restore the C: drive from image.
    It restores the drive in minutes :)

    I also am using acronis true image to restore in case of crashes, virus, etc. It usally takes just about 10-12 minutes to this. If I had reinstalled win xp from the set up cd, It would take me hours to configure everything. You should keep a back up using acronis true image just after formatting, installing and configuring everything. This back up can preferably in the protected zone of acronis true image. It should never be changed.

    I always wanted to have an image of my system, as I need frequent installations after beta testing softwares.

    well u can integrate the new updates in the window xp sp2+ cd. go to add/remove programs and click on show updates. get there names starting from kb*.exe. download them from microsoft site by searching on it with string "download kb9210456".download all the updates and put in one directory. make a backup copy of window xp sp2+ on a folder say c:\xp. from command prompt of update directory run the command
    di:>updatename.exe /integrate:c:\xp

    and that update will be integrated in xp sp2+ backup.
    1 problem is that till now microsoft has provided more then 60 updates. not all will b integrated but ur xp backup will move to size nearly of 800 MB
