Want to create a single, bootable CD with Win2K Pro SP4. If I can throw in IE6SP1 as well, all the better.

And is there a way to make one of those "upgrade" versions a "full" version?

The best site that I have found to accomplish this is here. I go there everytime a new SP comes out.

I have a FastTrac IDE RAID controller on one machine and a LSI SCSI controller on another that usually requires pressing F6 and inserting a floppy with driver. Is there a way to intergrate this, too? How about Audio and Video (TB Santa Cruz and GeForce3 Ti200)?

I don't think so. The OS looks specifically at the A: drive when its loading the drivers.

Followed that page to the letter and can't seem to make a bootable CD. Using Nero 5.5.10 with TDK 32x drive at both 32x and 8x write speeds with Imation media. Regular burning is fine - perhaps boot image is bad?

I've used these instructions successfully. They describe how to use IsoBuster to extract your own boot image file. Although the instructions are for XP, they should work for 2K.

I had issues with a Nero-generated Win2K+SP4 slipstream CD. I just recreated the image with CDRWin (alot of the original slipstream guides used CDRWin) and everything has been fine since.

Extracted own boot image file, but same deal - get "Illegal Function" when I try to read the disk. Will try another system/CDR, then another program.

Don't know about W2K - but I have done it with XP Pro using this procedure:
