In short, you want the SP2 CD.
Another short answer is that you don't need SP1 to install SP2.
And in closing, if your only recovery is on the hard disk, what happens when the hard disk vanishes?
Have a 8mo. old Pavilion with WXP Home, SP1, IE6&OE6. I use Firefox 9.2 about 99% of the time, I might add I have had no problems with IE (I update Windows and all security daily) but got away from it anyway.
1. Since Windows was already loaded on my PC and I have a D Drive with System Recovery will it be of any use with SP2?
2. Since I have 56K dialup, Will I need to get an SP2 disk rather than try to download on line?
3. Since I did not get an SP1 disk with my PC, can I get a free one from Microsoft along with the SP2 disk?
I know it's a little early yet, but I plan to download SP2 and continue to use Firefox. Just trying to get prepaired.
