unattended install without floppy drive



on a normal unattended install, the answer file 'winnt.sif' would be stored
on a floppy diskette and inserted at boot time would work fine. However on
newer PC without a floppy drive, is it possible to customize by making a copy
of the Windows XP CD and put the 'winnt.sif' on the CD itselft for unattended
install to work correctly?

If so, what would be the path or filename to put on CD for this to work? I
have attempted by putting 'winnt.sif' on root directory of CD but unattended
install failed, after booting and partitioning, setup runs but does not auto
fill in cdkey and network setting, etc...
