any one know about using the windows pre-install kit?

I have used it a few years ago for windows 98, have just brought a new system for a friend and it has windows in pre-install mode.

how can i step it back to audit mode? i wnat to install some anit-virus and such like but want to do all this before i deliver it to him.

i know it can be steped back by pushing a magic key sequance when it boots up. anyone know how?

thanks

have just found the answer.

I wont post the answer due to the fact that it would let a people boot a shop new XP computer with out typing in a product code.
MS would be very unhappy if the public could do that :-)

Intriguing - there is on the MS site a lot of info re OPK for mass preinstalling & testing - even Otago Uni site tells how to use, but under pain of death, not to reveal the OPK number.
