Process Explorer also has a "replace Windows task manager" option - it's now my default on all machines. But I would also recommend Process Monitor from the same site - great for seeing what programs and files are actually doing. Set a filter to only show, for example, files created or modified by blah blah name (eg, install.exe) and find out exactly what is being done. Especially handy if a program or driver install causes odd problems.

deployment tool for the bootable unattended windows installation

i found this today after trying to find a way to load RAID drivers without a floppy drive. thought I should share.

you can add any service packs, update files, and drivers you want to the installation prior to burn.

best of all, its free!
