    Thanx One of the Twelve for posting this in our forums...

    Adding the DirectX 9.0 OPK to the Windows XP Professional w/ SP1 OPK

    You need OPK versions of XP and DirectX to do this!

    You can choose to preinstall DirectX 9.0 as part of the GUI-mode Setup or as part of the Mini-Setup with Sysprep. Consult the Windows XP OPK documentation for details on these options.

    Pre-installing DirectX 9.0 with factory mode using Setup Manager and Preinstalled Applications

    1. Open up Windows Explorer and navigate to your existing OPKTools share (most likely C:\OPKTools)
    2. Create a subfolder under OPKTools called UPDATES
    3. Copy the dx9xpopk.exe into this folder
    4. Launch the Windows XP Setup Manager tool.
    5. Modify an existing or create a new configuration set using Windows XP with Service Pack 1
    6. Navigate to the Preinstalled Applications Page and then click Add
    7. Enter a friendly name and the path to the Executable (the UPDATES folder that you created above). NOTE: You do not need any switches to install the OPK version of DirectX 9.0.

    I made the article just because the majority have no access to the microsoft oem site. It's in the quotes as it's closer to unattended installation than the actual slipstreaming. OPK stands for OEM Preinstallation Kit. OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer... Correct me if I'm wrong :)
