    Search for any XP slipstreaming procedures (nLite for instance has a good one).

    If you do a direct copy it should be bootable. All of my OS CD's are tucked away in their original boxes. I always copy the CD and then use the copy instead of the original.

    If I later need to make a slipstreamed CD, I still use the copy, not the original.
    Create a new drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!
