I'm going to resurrect this thread and say that nLite, when used properly, could do more for you than a full install and then removing all that crap ever could.
Why install that stuff when you can nLite it away before it even touches your system? I've gotten some very small, VERY fast installs of XP and Server 03 out of nLite. More than I had ever gotten from a full install + removing stuff.
You're basically doing the same thing, but before the install instead of after, thereby removing any chance of having residual junk left from installing and then uninstalling.
The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.
