As for the Internet Archive, I would be happy to help make it happen and upload all files linked from your first post. Does that sound OK to you?
No problem with that.

Thanks @bphlpt about qchain, I was able to find it.

That said, I'm excited to see the VB script that Zephyr has linked to. I'll try it as soon as I get back and regain access to my VM machine. If it works I can just use that and not have to worry about qchain. Thanks for posting it!

I still don't completely get, however, why you prefer no slimming of the installer? Even though hard drive sizes are much bigger these days, I'...
