My friend on AOL just told me that his auto update started downloading sp2 this morning. Mine hasn't downloaded at this point. I am not on AOL.

Go to Windows Update...here is what is says on my WinXP computer and appears to be ready right now to update:
Quote:

"Download and install it using Automatic Updates
If you have Automatic Updates turned on, you don?t need to take any further action for SP2 to be downloaded to your computer while you are connected to the Internet. Depending on how long and how often you are connected to the Internet, it may take awhile before SP2 is fully downloaded. Once SP2 is completely downloaded from the Internet, you will be notified that it is ready to be installed on your computer. You can check your Automatic Updates setting on the Windows Update home page or by following the instructions on the Get computer updates page on the Microsoft Protect Your PC website.

Automatic Updates is the only way to download SP2 from Windows Update at this time. Other methods to install SP2 will be available soon." Unquote.

I have my Auto Updates disabled, waiting for a CD to be available as I have Dial-up, and even then may wait awhile. Wink
