Have It Your Way

As Microsoft rolls out Service Pack 2 for Windows XP, there
are now several ways to get the update. The first, as noted on
these pages earlier, is to download the
full 272MB file here
. The second is for MSDN subscribers
where you can download the 474MB ISO
for installing from CD (it includes utilities
described as useful for corporate environments). A third way to
install SP2 is to download this
1.6MB express installer
that will then download only the
files you need (which may or may not be less than 272MB). Of
course, the fourth way to get SP2 will be to wait for Windows
updates (automatic or otherwise) to go live on August 25th for
Windows XP Pro users (XP Home should have gone live already).
You choose which way is best for you.
