What other OS cool?
With the friends/family he's helping I doubt they're dual-booting.
Kairozamorro, you are correct, just has a single operating system. XP Pro
Coolname, I could just put the files on his computer for the recovery console ahead of time I guess if theres nothing out there that can be made bootable to do it. *Wink Wink*

Concentrate first on getting a working XP cd. I've never tried that tutorial, so good luck with it. If you do manage to produce a working XP cd/dvd, you can take that disk and use nlite to slipstream in sp3.
If all else fails, find a friend with an XP cd you can borrow. Should you need to re-install, you should be able to with thier cd as long as you enter your product key.
I actually do have a working Windows XP Pro Cd, but its service pack 2. Im trying to make a recovery cd for the purpose of giving to a few of my relatives who constantly call me to come fix their computer when windows doesnt startup. My goal is to make one of each service pack to have on hand. I have tried nlite before probably a few weeks ago, but i couldnt get it to work, was getting errors that I cant remember now unfortunately.
