    you could slipstream all those patches too (or wait for SP2 to be released)

    For those of you unfamiliar with the term slipstreaming, it is basically the process of integrating service packs or hotfixes into an application or Operating System install.

    Do it in increments. Pick a night and download all the critical updates under 1Mb. Then, the next night download all the critical updates greater than 1mb. Don't worry about the hudge updates like media player and movie maker 2.

    If you wait a few weeks, Service Pack 2 (For winXP) will come out. I know Personal Computer World magazine will have it on their cover disk, and probably a few others will as well; that's if you don't want to download it.
