Probably. Isn't .NET a component of Windows XP-SP1 or
installed with the SP1 upgrade?

No, it's not included in SP1.

Either they come with .Net Framework as part of the
XP-Home/Professional installation, or they are a free
"recommended" update when you use the Windows Update feature.

I suspect the former, since every indication on my machines is
that it was installed initially on the same date as the XPPro
that came on my D4400. And updated my L733r to at the same time.

It does not come on the system nor is it part of SP1. It is part of Disk
Image 7.0 and probably other software packages.

My Dimension 8300 purchased in March with XP Pro appears to have .NET
installed. I don't use/need it and it doesn't appear in Windows Update,
however it does appear in Windows Update on my 2 year old Dimension 8300
with XP Pro. Doesn't appear to be any way to uninstall it.

Tom;
It is a Microsoft Product available from windows Update.
To uninstall, go to Add/Remove Programs.
Look for "Microsoft .Net Framework"

"Disk Image 7.0 and probably other software packages"
No, it is not a part of those.
It may be included with them but .Net Framework is a Microsoft Product
It is available from Windows Update as a Recommended Update.

Every program made with Visual Studio C# or
Visual Basic (latest version), will need this
Framework to run.

So I can assume that they will list that as a minimum requirement for the
program or self check/install upon software installation.

I ran into the requirement while registering to report some issues with the
XP SP2 beta on the MS site. Received a prompt that .Net needed to be
installed to complete the report, provided a click to redirect to Windows
update for the download.
