I see three questions and one opinion request.
>>when i tried to install i got a invalid product key error..dunno wat that was bout any ideas ?<<
SP2 shows such and error for a pirated product key, so that's why it won't install. Solution ? Buy a genuine windows XP product.
>>should i try to dl again? or is it ok to install from a cd?<<
It doesn't matter, the error will be the same.
>>n if im gonna install from a cd do i need to be connected?<<
SP2 installation package it's self independent. It doesn't need the internet connection.
