    when windows no longer supports windows without sp2, will you still be able
    to reload windows from the disk and download sp2?

    I see no reason you wouldn't be able to, but if I were you, I would
    download and SAVE SP2 from the link below and then put it on CD. Then you
    can remove the download.

    Service Pack 2 For XP
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...BE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en

    Might as well get SP3 on another CD just to have around. Ant reason you
    don't want/have it now? FYI: If your installation disk is for SP1a, you
    can go directly to SP3 when reinstalling.

    Download Windows XP Service Pack 3 here:

    Why "another CD"? They both fit on a single CD.

    Man, this group is just troll heaven. You've apparently got nothing
    intelligent to post to any thread you have posted in this group, so you
    just troll other's replies to make idiotic comments. At least you keep
    reader's kill-files active.....

    I guess it keeps trolls like you busy too by replying to posts that have
    nothing to do with you.

    Any REAL MVP wouldn't be responding to these types of posts. Or is it
    because you're no longer an MVP, you're reaching for your real dream?

    So who is the troll here? :p (added so you could see the humor...)

    I agree with bruce.

    having each update file or
    each program no matter
    how small they are (except
    for ubiquitous freeware)

    on separate cd's simply
    makes things involving
    the o.s. more manageable.

    better yet is to make
    slipstreams which makes
    executing a "repair" install
    convenient in the future.

    Oh sure it does, if you enjoy hauling around several dozen CD's to do your
    work, and constantly shuffling those buggers into and out of the drive makes
    sense if you're getting paid by the hour, especially when one of them may be
    dependant on several of the others.

    Again, fuggin' brilliant.

    Yes, but you won't be able to use Windows Update (or Automatic Updates)
    unless & until SP3 is installed.

    Note: Extended Support for WinXP (x86) SP2 ends on 13 July 2010. After that
    date, computers running WinXP (x86) SP2 will NOT be offered any further
    critical security updates, Automatic Updates will not work, and Windows
    Update website will not be accessible until SP3 is installed.

    What does it mean if my version of Windows is no longer supported?

    yes, I can understand your
    logic and position.

    there are many of us that
    have certain luxuries and
    then there are those that
    do not.

    but I never bash anyone
    for posting their preferred
    methodologies,

    because the method you
    proposed may actually be
    utilized by the o.p.

    Good point.

    Then again, using that analogy, one should put several installers on one
    CD (Greg's idea) and make at least one copy of that CD (your idea).
