Support for XP N (Reduced Media Edition) is planned for the future, but not the next release. Stay tuned.

Just download and save the 1.2.2 and 1.2.2b packs and keep using those would be my suggestion. 8)

If I recall correctly, there is a list on the ms site which contains all files removed in N.
Perhaps this list can help...

No it doesnt have all the hotfixes in it although, i notice on my xp n cd there is a svcpack folder with hotfix KB891646 in it. Does anyone else have this on their cd? also i can`t find any documentation on it.

Well, the file within is sysmain.sdb, and it's got a newer date than the one in my pack. I'm wary to include it, however, without knowing what it's for.

Plus, the last thing I need right now is another hotfix to integrate :P

well, well, well it looks like sysmain.sdb is an Application Database File it contains program-matching information and compatibility fixes.
Found the info Here though the link is not for KB891646.exe.
I`ve just removed it from the source, don`t think it`s important imo

I wonder if M$ has deployed XP N with fixes in svcpack!

Compatibility Solutions
Now we know some of the compatibility problems. What are the solutions? XP introduces three levels of native compatibility solutions:

Compatibility fix: This option provides a “shim.” A shim is a dynamic link library (DLL) used to fix a single compatibility issue. The DLL is dynamically loaded when the application starts. It replaces function calls with one the application expects. For example, a compatibility fix can be applied to trick an application into thinking it’s running on an earlier version of Windows.

Compatibility mode: This is a collection of compatibility fixes applied together. For example, for XP to respond to an application with Windows 95-like behavior, a Windows 95 compatibility layer can be applied to an application. This particular compatibility mode is comprised of 57 individual fixes.

AppHelp: If a compatibility fix or mode can’t resolve a compatibility issue with an application, a message can be displayed advising the user of unresolved compatibility issues or block an application from running.

These compatibility solutions use matching information found in databases to identify an application. They then inform the compatibility technologies as to which solution or solutions should be applied to an application. There are several database files used by the compatibility fix technologies. The two you should be familiar with are:

SYSMAIN.SDB: This database contains a list of many third-party applications and their associated compatibility modes and compatibility fixes.

APPHELP.SDB: This database contains a list of third-party applications and their associated help messages.

These databases are located in the %windir%\apppatch directory. There are several methods available to apply compatibility fixes and modes found in the compatibility databases.

I should have been more clear - I meant what that specific version is for (there's no valid KB article for it).
