Why Nlite?

CAUSE IT'S DA WAYZ OF TEH FEWCHER, SUCKA LOL

Getting Started

Ok, here's a list of applications and items that we need to get the show on the road.

Integrating Service Packs

Before we continue through this tutorial, I can only assume that you've read the Getting Started chapter and have all the tools ready, working and installed as per the guide.

  • Service Pack 2 for Windows XP can be downloaded here.
  • Service Pack 3 Release Candidate for Windows XP can be downloaded here

Available Addon Software

Here is a good start to getting a real taste of exactly what nlite can do for you.

Here is a list of already made and managed Nlite Addons hosted at http://www.winaddons.com.

So what exactly is in this list? As you can see at a glance, it's sorted alphabetically. Have a quick scroll down and see if you can find any of your favourite applications. Basically, it's a list of freeware & shareware software that you can slipstream to your Windows install disc. For example, on this list is the well known PDF reader package by Adobe, Adobe Reader. By default, Windows XP can't open up PDF files. So to get around this we can download the CAB file located at Win Addons for Adobe Reader and slipstream it to our Windows install disc. Now, when you format your computer, and use this updated Windows install disc to re-install Windows, Adobe reader will also install too! All automatically and silently. You don't have to click any buttons, or sort through any install files. It's all done, and you'll never have to re-download adobe PDF reader ever again!

Winamp

Before we continue through this tutorial, I can only assume that you've read the Getting Started chapter and have all the tools ready, working and installed as per the guide.

OK, so you've gone through the Available Addon Software list, and noticed that winamp isn't on that list. want to add the latest Winamp version to your Windows XP Sp3 Cd. Well, we'll start at the Nulsoft website http://www.winamp.com/. Here you can navigate to the "Free Download" button, then download the "Full" version, which is currently 5.53 as I type.
