I want to use this on FLP to slipstream sp2, unatended install and then nlite then repack it. I tried to open ImageX and GImageX and really nothing happens.
Can someone give me a tutorial on using it.

Firstly, FLP already has SP2 in it, and all updates to part way through 2005.
Unattended install is supported, and there should be documentation on the ISO.

Finally, should you unpack it, nLite will not help you, as the WIM is a hard drive image, rather than a collection of i386 files. FLP is essentially a premade copy of Windows XP Embedded.

Is there a way to reduce the iso more than what it is now?

It is sp2 so that doesnt have to be slipstreamed. I looked to see unatended documentation and didnt see any, can you point me in the right direction?

Is there an easy way to modify it?

I found the tool to do unattended installs of FLP. It needs netframework but no biggie. Where do I put the answer file?

Is there a way tp modify the install?

Afaik, you can put it anywhere on the disk, or on a network share. Early in the installation, it asks if you have an anwser file and then asks you to locate it.

No a screen during the setup stage will ask for an interactive setup or a unattended setup.

If I remember correctly, you can just run through the GUI-mode version of Setup to create an answer file.

Run this command from the CD: setup.exe /guionly:<filename>.txt
Where <filename>.txt is where you want to place the unattended file. From there, just answer the Setup questions the way you would normally and it'll generate the answer file.

For example to create an unattended file in C:\unattend.txt, you'd use:
setup.exe /guionly:C:\unattend.txt

Then, during setup, just tell it you have an unattended install answer file and give it that file (on some form of storage device, eg a floppy.)

I hope I helped...
