That only works...

If the 60 PCs are duplicates of each other down to chipset, video and more.

I will NOT duplicate the fine content about SYSPREP in the XP Resource Kit. I take it you have opened yours up and read it again?

Also, what is this about .MSI? I didn't see this noted in the resource kit. Who dreamed that up?
