I'm trying to add a windows component, specifically "Other Network File and
Print Services," and receive a prompt to insert the Windows XP Professional
Service Pack 2 disk. The first problem with that is that I installed the
operating system from a disk that does not have service pack 2 embedded in
it, then installed the download version of SP2. When I first received this
prompt, I ordered the SP CD from Microsoft and attempted adding the component
again. The second problem is that it doesn't find what it is looking for on
the disk, and is still prompting me for the same thing. I have tried the
various subdirectories; but am still having no luck. Can anyone please help?
I need this in order to set up printing on a very picky plotter!

Download and use Autostreamer. This will re-create a new XP install CD
image with SP2 pre-installed. You can then create a CD with this (just not
with native XP tools.)
