My question is this:

How do you make an unattended SP3 install? Do you just follow the same instructions for making an SP2 disc with all the updates but also update it with the SP3 update download and the deployment tools? I am using a SP2 disk as my base so I need to apply all the SP2 hotfixes then do the SP3 update download and use the SP3 deployment tools when it says to, right?

You can forget about the updates for SP2.

Grab your source disk or distribution folder (the place where your i386 and other folders are) and use HFSLIP, nLite or manually integrate SP3 to the folder I named first (source disk or distribution folder). Then you proceed making an unattended source as explained in the unattended guide here in MSFN.org (http://unattended.msfn.org/)

Right now there are 184 MB in 47 updates post Sp3, for the Spanish version of Windows XP.

Hope I'm useful to you

EDIT: Yes, you can use the program included in deploy.cab in the support folder, setupmgr.exe, it's user-friendly.
