You can list and download all Windows XP updates from
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.aspx?displayl...
Just select Windows XP in the Product/Technology dropdown.

You can get SP2 from Windows Update on the Start Menu. SP2 includes SP1 and
is not required to install SP2.

Note: Since SP2 supersedes SP1, you should not install SP1
before installing SP2.

Click on start, click help & support, scrool to bottom of help & support
page and click on windows updatde. If you have dial up internet it may take
a long time to download the sp1 & 2. Hope this helps Bill . "srobin"

When you get this message 1 or 2 things have usually happened:
1) The download is corrupt or
2) You downloaded the 64-bit version instead of 32-bit version.

You only need SP2, which includes the SP1 components still relevant.
Get it as a download (266 MB) at
