Hi I would like to know if there is a way to slipstream Downloaded Automatic Updates into a Windows xp Pro installation without waiting for SP2 to come out.

although you can script them together and have them install one after one.
Use this format:

The new “Rollup” makes this fairly easy: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=826939
For a true slipstream, MS KB: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;814847
And this site is just terrific: http://www.msfn.org/unattended/xp/gettingstarted.htm
For pushing Hotfixes, this general method works fine: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;296861&FR=1&PA=1&SD=HSCH

Thanks for the Help
Thank you for all your help. I think I know what to do. But I would like to know how to do it to Slipstream the Hotfixes in Batch. Thanks

My last link gave you the information you need.
If you want to have more control over the process, you should look at the freeware and paid versions of Shavlik’s Hfntetchk: http://www.shavlik.com/pHFNetChkPro.aspx
I have done fine “by hand” with the KB articles linked above. You should also know about qfecheck: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=282784

Use MBSA (MS Baseline Security Analyzer). You can run it in HFNetChk mode btw in batch with a lot of switches and options. Or you run in GUI mode and the outputs will be in xml format.
Chaining hotfixes in batch:
I mostly use the -n -z -q switches, but if you want to know which switches are possible, run the .exe from command line with the /? switch.
Note: in general all Windows fixes are using the same switches, but for example IE fixes use sometimes other switches.
For SP’s there are also switches available if you don’t include them in the OS installation files (run update.exe /?).
You can ofcourse use another way to chain them except batch (vbs, kix, …)
