You'll need the .INF association fix, that you can download from Doug's
site:

Yep, that was it. Thank you. I looked through all my favorites and went to
that site a couple of times and could not find the fix. But I found it this
time.

Well, I thought that would work, but it didn't. I have it working on another
machine and I thought that this fix was the one that fixed it. But on my
master machine, even with a reboot, there still is no install on the context
menu.

Sussertown,

This was the fix I was referring to:
http://www.dougknox.com/xp/fileassoc/xp_inf_assoc.zip

Once merged to the registry, see if this key is created/present:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\inffile\shell\Install\command

Click Start/Run and type REGEDIT to launch Registry Editor.
