Free Windows XP SP2 CD

Microsoft now is offering a free CD containing Windows XP Service Pack 2 (including shipping and handling). If you're use dialup, it can be difficult to download 70-200MB depending on the updates you need and the options you choose. Updates this large are even slow on broadband connections.

Having the SP2 on CD is great if you need to loan it out, or need it around just in case you're reinstalling the OS. System Requirements To install Windows XP Service Pack 2 via CD, you need:
  • Windows XP Home, Professional, Media Center, or Tablet PC Edition
  • 233Mhz CPU or faster
  • 64MB of RAM or more
  • 1.6GB of available space on your hard drive for the installation
  • CD-ROM drive
