    The Essential Website List !!

    After posting my essential software list, it occured to me that, when it comes to fixing things, the Internet is probably the most useful resource that we have. Of course, finding the information that you need is always the trick. There are a few web sites that I can usually rely on, so here goes;

    MSFN Unattended - EVERYTHING you need to know about unattended Windows XP installation. 5 stars

    AppDeploy - Great resource for finding out how to do silent installs. Also some useful MSI info. 4 stars

    InstallSite - Another execllent 'installation' site with good MSI and InstallShield info. 4 stars

    NU2 - Home of Bart PE, Modular Boot Disk and Bart's way for creating bootable CDs. 4 stars

    SysInternals - Home of the best system utilities. 4 stars

    MCSE World - Home of Daniel Petri. Sound information. 4 stars

    Labmice - Tips and advice on most MS gear. 3 stars

    Annoyances - Lot's of useful tips here. 3 stars

    Win32 Scripting - Good searchable collection of scripts in many languages. 3 stars

    The following sites are perhaps not 'essential' but VERY interesting, especially to those who might like to go their own way rather than be railroaded by Microsoft.

    Unattended - It's not RIS, it's not GHOST, it's the 3rd way. I HAVE NOT used the system presented on this site, but there is a wealth of installation/deployment expertise on display here.

    ANI - Automated Network Installation. Just found this one and it looks very interesting. Trigger remote rebuilds!!

    ROM-O-MATIC - Creates custom network boot ROMS/disks. In theory (I think), a disk from this site could be used to do a PXE boot on a non-PXE NIC. Never got it to quite work myself tho...

    Nice list. One I find indispensible is Kelly's Korner. The site has lots of info for Windows XP, but I just use the registry tweaks collection from time to time on workgroup or standalone machines.

    Aww man it's locked now! Was gonna add Darik's Boot and Nuke site. Invaluable when military wiping hard drives that are leaving your school. I don't know if it's features are available on a rescue linux CD or something though.
