    What does UNATTEND.XML do?

    Simple question. Hoping the answer will be Simple as well!

    What does it do? How do you edit it? How does it relate to WDS \ MDT?

    in simple terms, its the unattended file that can be used to automate an install of Vista / 7.

    Edit it in notepad if you want, or you can use WAIK to edit it.

    You can use it in a OS Deployment Task Sequence in MDT

    I've used a default-ish one in SCCM, as i've generally got the SCCM TS to do the fancy bits

    Pretty much yes, but they don't exist anymore :P

    Just stores all the predefined "answers" to the setup etc, as like sysprep.inf

    Migration of Sysprep.inf Settings
