I get quite a few emails from people asking if there is a help file that details all of the scripts that are supplied with Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT). The scripts form the engine of a deployment and can also help you to develop a framework for scripts that you need to create for your own tasks. The MDT documentation (installed in \Program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit\Documentation) is a good place to start - but I also point people to the online MDT Reference - which lists the following information for each script supplied:
Name. Specifies the name of the script.
Description. Provides a description of the purpose of the script and any pertinent information regarding script customisation.
Input. Indicates the files used for input to the script.
Output. Indicates the files created or modified by the script.
References. Indicates other scripts or configuration files that are referenced by the script.
Location. Indicates the folder where the script can be found. In the information for the location, the following variables are used:
program_files. This variable points to the location of the Program Files folder on the computer where Microsoft Deployment is installed.
distribution. This variable points to the location of the Distribution folder for the deployment point.
platform. This variable is a placeholder for the operating system platform (x86 or x64).
Use. Provides the command line and options that can be specified.
Arguments and description. Indicate the valid arguments to be specified for the script and a brief description of what each argument means.
Properties. The properties referenced by the script.

I noticed in your LTI screencast that on your COREIMAGE01 you had a few task sequence items for customizing Vista like SetBuildWallpaper, SideBarDisable, EnableRemoteDesktop, DisableLastLogoff, AdminScrambler, etc. Can you share the scripts and settings behind these or offer any others for further custimizing a Vista Core Image?
