Chapter Summary

In this chapter, you learned about several means you can use to perform unattended installations of Windows XP Professional. You can use Setup Manager to prepare answer files that can be used with any type of unattended installation. It is then easy to install Windows XP Professional on a computer by using the winnt command with the /u and /s switches, or the winnt32 command with the /unattend and /s switches.

RIS runs on a server and enables you to store multiple images of Windows XP Professional computers complete with settings, applications, service packs, and so on. On a network containing DHCP, DNS, and Active Directory, client computers can use a PXE-enabled NIC or a special boot floppy disk to connect to the RIS server and install a selected image of Windows XP Professional.
