: i read somewhere about a method of saving the XP install to disk, and then when you reinstall it, it is current with all the updates etc. I believe it was in PC magazine. Anyone have the issue and volume number??????

Do you mean making a disk copy of the current installed version of XP or the original source files used for the install but with the updates already included?

I think you are referring to recreating the XP installation disk with all of the MS updates already included. This is called "slipstreaming". Here is the link to a video on's web site that I think is what you referred to.
