    I'm preparing a used laptop for my daughter. I'll be installing a fresh copy of XP on it, but I'd like it to start up in audit mode so she'll be asked all the usual setup questions as if it were new from the factory. Is there a way to do that? Thanks.

    Ah. Wish I was an OEM Partner, but not. I thought there might be a command I could run to put it into audit mode. Thanks.

    The following procedure will do the trick.
    1. Install Windows XP.
    2. At "Windows Welcome" type "System" when creating a user account.
    3. Run sysprep with the audit and reboot options.
