Slipstream service pack and create a new Windows XP installation CD

I am not yet able to be Windows-free since some apps are only available on Windows and/or Mac OS X. Among those apps are those from Adobe: Acrobat and Pagemaker (or InDesign). I recently reinstalled Windows on an old laptop (I’ve actually started to use VirtualBox with Windows on my Linux laptop afterwards, but I will blog about that later) so that I can access those apps.

After reinstalling Windows, I had the auto-update ran quite a few times before Windows was up to date. Decided to slipstream the SP3 onto my installation CD. Instructions can be found here.

Also, I don’t like this whole activation thing because of privacy. This post shows how to bypass it easily.
