Perhaps your network is disconnecting you? Maybe malware? Maybe poor network
connection?

Get the XP SP2 CD for free:

At present, there is no "XP Service Pack 2a". The current version of
the XP Service Packs is Service Pack 2.

Perhaps you are referring to Office XP Service Pack 2a. To address
Office XP issues, use a microsoft.public.office.* newsgroup.

Hi:

Try this instead

WinXP SP2 Manual Download/Off-line Installer
