Windows 2000 Server Stripped Down to Core/Server files only

Post by PROBLEMCHYLD » Tue Jun 05, 2012 11:58 am

I'm about to start stripping down fdv 2000 Server fileset. I'm going to need some help.

What I mean by strip, is that I will be removing everything that is (NOT) server related.
No NOTEPAD
No WORDPAD
No CALCULATOR etc.....
The fileset will install only system core files + server files. Nothing more, nothing less.
Things like defrag/chkdsk will be left, because they are system tools.

Now here's an example in LAYOUT.INF

iexplore.hlp = 1,,,,,,,21,0,0

I know the 21 means the help directory, but what does the other numbers mean?

gosh's classic reference explains almost everything you need to know about [SourceDisksFiles] entries.

For more destination codes like 21, see the [WinntDirectories] section of Layout.inf or TxtSetup.sif.
