Can I modify the winnt.sif file to create more than one partition?

Can I modify the winnt.sif file so that it creates more than one partition in a new hard drive for doing a fully unattended set up of Windows XP?
Sort of! In the answer file for an unattended setup (in the [DATA] section,) add or edit the line AutoPartition=0. This will prompt the user for partition setup during the install process. It isn't possible to automate multiple partitions, but this is the next best thing. The only way to truly do automated multiple partitions is to use a third-party disk imaging solution.
