Does the CD which contains Sp2 also have SP1 which will be installed
automatically, or do I have to do Sp1 first and then SP2? Thank you!

SP2 replaces SP1 and all critical updates that were released prior to SP1's
release date.

(In other words - if you install SP2, you have all critical patches for
Windows XP up until the day SP2 was released - including SP1.)

How can I get an SP2 CD for my neighbor who only has dial-up? It is taking to
long to download.
