You can use nlite to customize the XP setup disk. Among many other things it allows you to add entries to the registry..

However this is not a 5 minute task, you have to learn the tool and some concepts first.

Thank you sir for your replay.If you don't mind can you tell me the steps to edit registry using nlite or can you give me a easy tutorial link of nlite regedit tips? – mun Dec 8 '12 at 14:20
There are some tutorials on the site, and also 3rd party blog posts about it. I have not used the tool for at least 5 years, so I don't remember the details. – Peter Hahndorf Dec 8 '12 at 14:23
