Ok, i've flipped over this board front and back. I'm still missing out on a few small details. In the first part of the thread, we make $NT$.BT .LS folders... According to the guide i rename the .LS XPHome and the .BT VOL1. Then the guide says to copy Vol1 to XPHome... however, later on in the guide you show them as being equal level on your directory tree. I'm very confused about how to structure the directory. On a side tangent.. is there anyway to compare the directory's of XP Home and XP Pro, and merge them into one directory? If no one has tried this i'll gladly pioneer the effort, but i'd like to know if my efforts are in vain before i start. Also, after i ran the Winnt32 /noreboot from my win2k cd, i renamed the folders and what have you, but when i rebooted my computer it tried to run windows setup (for 2K), and errored out (because i had moved the directories). Did i miss a step to avoid this problem? Thanks a lot for all your help!
