    As much as any random download site is trusted I guess. What can be a total legit download one day, could be filled with trojans the next.

    Don't really see the point in it, as if you're doing this for home use the only different is sitting waiting for installs to deploy, and if it's for work based I'm assuming you already have some method setup for installing updates? (Yes a slipstream patch would do it at install, but you could set that up yourself too with normal updates)

    It is. I've used the update pack once or twice in the past. As Steve said above, it's quite easy to integrate the hotfixes yourself...

    Code:
    TITLE Windows XP SP3 Slipstreamer
    CLS
     @echo off
    ECHO.
    ECHO Slipstreaming Windows XP Post-SP3 Updates
    ECHO Please wait...
    FOR %%f IN (*.exe) DO "%%f" /Quiet /Integrate:C:\XPCD
    ECHO.
    ECHO Slipstreaming Completed!
    ECHO.
    Pause
    Exit
    ^ This assumes you have downloaded all of the relevant hotfix EXEs first.
