    I'm trying to set up a XP Pro image (using Norton Ghost to clone XP on a bunch of laptops), and I can't seem to find the Sysprep.exe file that I need so I can make each cloned hard drive generate a new SID for each one upon bootup.

    The "help" pages tell me to get it off the XP CD in the /support/tools/deploy.cab file, but I don't have the /support directory in the XP CD I'm using at work, I think it's a corporate copy.

    So, any other place I could download this elusive "sysprep.exe" file I need?

    It's a special disc that goes to OEMs apparently. You can't get it unless you know someone who has access to it
