    I am trying to throw together a multiple windows installer iso for convenience in the office. Something along the lines of the winXP9in1 iso. In the 9in1, I noticed that the duplicate files have been removed to conserve space ( they are in a ROOT folder I think). I've had a Windows 2000 All-in-one like that, with Pro, Server, Adv.Server and Datacenter all on one cd.

    How do you remove the duplicates and link the folders to the correct files?

    If this is a function of a certain program, what is it?

    Thanks people!

    Microsoft's own CDIMAGE does this, terminology is:

    -o optimize storage by encoding duplicate files only once

    It's a command line program, so you will need to do a lot of reading up on how to use it.
