Slipstreaming integrates the Service pack installation with the Windows 2000 installation, as a single installation.
To perform a slipstream installation:
1. Create a distribution folder (C:\Win2000), and share, on your Windows 2000 'server' and
XCOPY <Windows 2000 CD_ROM Drive:>\ c:\Win2000 /e.
2. Slipstream the service pack by running
<Windows 2000 Service Pack CD_ROM Drive:>\i386\update\update.exe /s:C:\Win2000.
3. Install Windows 2000 from the distribution share.
NOTE: The slipstream replaces installation files with service pack files and modifies the necessary checksums.
NOTE: Slipstreamed service packs can NOT be uninstalled.
NOTE: Update.exe /s: builds a %SystemRoot%\Svcpack.log file. You may want to rename it so the next slipstream doesn't overwrite it.
