problems downloading SP1

by ksoiehawo / September 2, 2004 8:00 AM PDT

I cannot download Windows XP SP1 through the Windows Update page, is there any other way I can get it besides ordering the CD?

when i try to download SP1, it just hangs for a long time, then it tells me that the update has failed to install properly.
