Currently I am using XP Professional SP2. I am looking at rebuilding my
system and starting with a clean operating system. Can someone please
explain to me "in detail" how I can download to disk all the windows updates
since SP2. I have SP2 on disk. I am currently accessing the internet through
a dial up but would like to download all the updates via a friends computer
who is on broadband.
Thanks

Yes you can slipstream SP2 and all the updates and burn onto a new XP cd-r.

Thanks Nog, but I need to know where I can go to obtain ALL the updates
since SP2. I have already downloaded some to my computer but I dont need the
MS site reading my updates to date and offering me some others! I need ALL
since SP2.
Thanks.

You can download them from the Catalog and save to be installed later.

Click Add button for each update you want to download. Once you have what you want,
Click the "Go To Download Basket" link. Type in or browse to the location where you
want the updates saved to and then Click the "Download Now" button.
Once downloaded, you can then burn them to CD.
