    Is anyone else having problems with creating a slipstream media on a
    computer running Windows 2000 Service Pack 4? Everyone I know who has
    tried are ending up with update.exe crashing. Does anyone have any idea
    what might be causing this behavior? I can create a slipstream media
    with service pack 1 on a computer running Windows 2000, so it should work.

    I use the command "C:\TEMP\WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe
    extracting the service pack works fine, but when it tries to run the
    update.exe it crashes.

    The update.exe can be found in the following directory i386\update\
    Extract it with the -x parameter "WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe -x"
