I have a Aspire One AOA 150 . I want to customize a Windows XP installation ( for e.g with nlite ) for small memory footprint and low CPU usage. then I want to try out Windows XP embedded for performance comparisons. How can I generate a small footprint Windows XP installation? Anyone having similar experience on netbooks?

There's a few guides to it such as this

In addition, use a rewritable cd, in case you remove something you need, so you can tweak the install, and know your hardware.
