i have got a xp slipstream CD with sp2,but i made sometime ago a set of boot floppies for xp home,would these still work with the sp2 slipstream version and can you make floppies slipstream like the CD if they wont.

The floppy disks are just for your system to "see" your cd drive... Nothing more.... They just contain drivers for cd drives, mouse drivers, etc....

Would sp2 have changed the drivers as i made the disks before i had sp2.

Yes, the drivers may be "upgraded", but it would still boot to the setup as the setup structure itself wouldn't have changed, just some files have been added....

The boot-image on the cd is still in the same sectors, and there aren't any real driver updates for the hardware that is required to operate during the WinXP setup
