 A Geeks Guide to BDD 2007 – Part 4, Deploying XP using Lite Touch Minimize
Location: BlogsJohan Arwidmark    
Posted by: johan 5/5/2007
Welcome
BDD 2007, as you probably already know, is End-to-end guidance, best practices, and tools for planning, building, and deploying Windows and Office. BDD 2007 is developed by a team led by Michael Niehaus (lead developer) and Mike Lewis (Architect).
This guide explains the necessary steps to use the Lite Touch Component of BDD 2007 to deploy Windows XP. It assumes that you have set up the BDD 2007 deployment server as described in “Geeks Guide to BDD 2007 – Part 1, Core Configuration”.  
For improvement suggestions (or bugs) in this guide, please drop a note to johan [dot] arwidmark [at] truesec [dot] com, at myitforum.com (alias jarwidmark) or post in the public Microsoft newsgroups (group: microsoft.public.deployment.desktop)
 
If you want to learn more, check out my public BDD 2007 classes, or bring me onsite to teach at your company location. Go http://www.truesec.com for more info.
