Donna, SP1 Was Released A Long Time Ago...
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / January 25, 2006 12:08 PM PST

It was originally release in August 2004...Clearly, the download link you provided makes it appear like it was re-released but I see nothing that was added to it in the Knowledgebase article:

How to obtain Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1

List of bugs that are fixed in the .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Just a guess but it's possible Windows Server 2003 was added and therefore it was released again primarily for that OS. It also includes the re-release of "Security Update for SP1".

Hope this helps.
