I really want to download SP2 manually. . .

by Coryphaeus / August 16, 2004 12:31 PM PDT

I have three networked PCs running XP Home. I want to download SP2 and burn it to a CD so I can update one at a time. And for future use. With my cable connection, download time is not an issue (3 Meg/sec).

The only kicker is my networked PCs are running perfectly, zero problems, zero intrusions. I keep thinking about the old adage, "If it ain't broke. . .".

Will it be available any time soon? I can't find that information at the MS site.

I got the 255MB version off the net and the installation went perfectly. It even fixed a couple issues I had before. Working fast and rock solid so far.

Mine was downloaded Monday and not a problem and as Dave mentioned a few minor glitches I did have are now fixed.
