Re-installing SP2

After recovery of my XP (Home) with SP1 included, I went to Windows update
and it is showing about 24 High Pri updates but nothing about SP2? Should I
install these updates? And when does it offer me the SP2 update? Thanks.

SP-2 may need to see other updates before it will install with Express
Installation.
Instead download SP-2 and burn to CD or order SP-2 on CD, Step 1 on this

OK, thanks Jupiter Jones. I will ignore the Express updates for the time
being and go stright to the SP2 install which I do have on CD.
I had originally installed SP2 by downloading from the update site but had
also ordered SP2 on CD which I never used. Thanks again and have a good day.
