Windows XP Service Pack 1a Express Installation: http://www.microsoft.com/WindowsXP/p...p1/express.asp

^ The URL says "/pro/", but I pretty sure it also applies to XP Home.

Uh... okay

Acutally that web page will download the "launcher" which then connects you to MS and allows the full SP update. What if you want to have THE WHOLE THING. You know like burnable to a CDrom? Etc.

One method I have found works pretty well is to delete everything WUTemp directory. Do the whole webpage deal then copy the contents of the WUTemp directory to another directory where you then proceed to zip it up. The reason I say copy to another folder is purely for naming semantics... you can essentially zip the files in the WUTemp directory, burn to CDROM and then take where you want. The whole deal will be there for ya without forcing you to have an internet connection.

I hope this helps.
