    I want to make a slipstreamed XP setup CD's using my XP Home and XP Pro SP1 CD's.

    First question: I have to make separate CD's for XP Home and XP Pro, right? For example, If I only built the XP Pro CD, it wouldn't work with the CD key for my XP Home CD?

    Second Question: My XP Home Install disk was pre SP1. So I have to include the SP1A, SP2, and SP3 downloads on it? For my XP Pro SP1, I include SP2 and SP3.

    You would need separate slipstreamed CDs for each vesion of XP or for each Product ID.

    All you need to do is slipstream the system with Service Pack 3 and then fully update it as soon as you install it.
