It is Illegal to make copy's of the original OS disk, so therefore it shouldnt be discussed here.

did you make a copy of it? if you wanna have fun download nlite then stripe windows if its xp. There's lots of preset tweaks where they explain you what's needed for what. You can strip it down to 400mb with all the tweaks and settings already set at installation, newest drivers install even service packs slipstreamed. It makes a iso image for you when your done and you can burn it to disk. I got my xp down to 300mb drivers integrated everything. It runs like a dream

No. In this case, the CD has already been redistributed... From the very beginning this thread has been against the ToS. The ONLY place it's acceptable to obtain a copy of a Windows Operating System is from Microsoft or one of MS's partners.

I'll make a list for you guys that applies to this thread..
  • Downloading a copy from the internet to burn = illegal/against ToS
  • Making a copy from a friends disk you do not own = illegal/against ToS
  • Making a backup of a disk you obtained legitimately = legal/acceptable (**provided you break no encryption)
  • Discussing how to burn/create an ISO disk Image you legally obtained = legal/acceptable (**provided you break no encryption)

Everyone should have a read of the following threads.
