What's the file sizes of sp2 winupdate version?

As you probably know the sp2 "net install" version has rolled out but is a wopping 266megs - i have a 56Modem (only the rich people in austraia can afford cable!) so it will take a while to download (probably sp3 will be out by the time it has finished downloading!) So my qussion is does anyone know the file size of the standard version to be released via windows update in about 10 days (i believe) - "i want it now!!!!" but will wait if it is going to be much smaller

Depending on your state of updates it is rumored to be as small as 80MB, supposedly there will be lots of CDs ( full version )mailed-shipped-laying about in stores-ala AOL, might investigate getting a download manager for resume purposes....

thanks for that tcantrelln - 80megs is a lot smaller than 266 - but it seems like the larger version must have lots more things on it than just the "net install" version - dont suppose you know the finer details of what though???? - we may end up having to download "all and sundary" at a later date anyway
thanks again

In reply to: Re: thanks for that, but

i hear what you say but there is a big difference between 266meg and 80meg which led me to think the larger version contains some added "goodies"??
