    Hi Macca,
    Are you using Setup Manager?
    I thought you could set those options as standard?
    Cheers,
    Glenn.

    reference

    This site may help you out as it has lots of information http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/

    This page has a reference on the winnt.sif answer file that should give you the answers that you are after.

    I think that you just leave the station name field blank which should make it ask you for the name.
