    I'm sorry if this question has been asked and answered in
    the newsgroup. I have tried doing several searches, but
    the web page just keeps timing out.

    My question is for Windows Server 2003: is there a way to
    install the Hotfixes (such as KB823980) through the
    Unattend.txt method, so that it would be installed prior
    to the server logging into the network, and therefore
    being succeptible to any viruses?

    I have read some stuff on the cmdlines.txt portion of the
    unattend.txt, but I am not clear if this is something that
    we can use to install hotfixes, or even service packs.

    Thanks,

    Please let me know if you succeed by following the
    instructions, iv'e been using this method with great
    success on Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Prof and
    Windows XP Prof, but still no luck when trying on Windows
    Server 2003.

    Regards

  5. Not the way I saw it:
    Prior to logging on would be prior to the first boot, which is what that
    article explains
