This morning I burnt the whole thing to a CDRW, cloned a clean copy of win2k
in vmware, and tried out my install procedure. It seems to be working just
fine. So I have any automated install going with a few batch files, perl,
and shell scripts. It probably would be best to implement the perl script
as a shell script, but I'm more comfortable with perl, which I need for this

I'll package up my scripts and post them in a bit when I have then cleaned
up a little and am sure everything is working.
