Preliminary Windows XP Service Pack 3 slipstreaming guide

I've posted, but not linked to, a preliminary version of my Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) slipstreaming guide. I'm curious if anyone's interested in testing this procedure. I've done so on several systems, both from within Vista and XP, and have had reproducible success. However, I don't have every permutation of XP Setup disc there is, and I can only do so much. I want to make sure this really works before unleashing it on the masses.

Besides, Microsoft sort-of "pulled" the public SP3 download today so this update is in limbo for a few more days. What the heck.

Anyway... Let me know if you see anything that's obviously wrong. And if anyone has any ideas about integrating IE 7 and WMP 11 as well, I'm all ears.
