How to Update Win XP Pro to Win XP SP2 CD-Rom files on Hard Drives

I ordered and received the Win XP Pro SP2 CD-rom in the mail. I have my
original Win XP Pro Cd-Rom files copied to my computers D:\ hard drive
(WinXPro directory). I have copied the new SP2 CD-rom to my C:\ harddrive
under C:\xpSP2 directory.

I believe there is a way to update my original Win XP Pro to the new SP2,
but I don't know the command line I would use. My new SP2 directory does
not contain an i386 subdirectory.

Does anyone know the command line to use? If I am successful at updating
can I then delete my C:\drive's copy of the new SP2 files?

Hopefully I made this inquiry straight enough for someone to follow.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe /integrate:C:\WinXP

Where "WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe" is the executable for Windows XP SP2
and C:\WinXP is the directory where your Windows XP installation is located.
