For those interested in a HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL reduced system, Dietmar over at boot-land posted info on how to make a very minimal command line XP:

Does it have to be SP1? If so, you should still be able to get the SP1 package and so could slipstream it a gold copy of XP. You can download a trial copy of XP Embedded from MS if you need one.

Current status:
XP 2600 (SP0) works
XP 2600 SP1 works
XP 2600 SP2 UNTESTED
Server 2003 (ANY build) UNTESTED

The basic idea of an EXPERIMENT is actually to, well, experiment , it is possible that SP2 works, but we will never know until someone actually tries it and reports.
