I'm not aware of any way to make IE work like that. You can download the ISO (CD image file) of SP3 here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...50-fe22559d164e

You can use a download manager for it, but it's going to be a long download on dial-up. Microsoft had a program where they would mail you the SP2 CD for only the cost of shipping, but I don't know if they're doing it for SP3.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I will give my flash drive to my friends wife and she can download it from work.

about 20 min on cable, judging by what firefox is telling me, I doubted that it would take an hour like MS said (Ubuntu Studio DVD's dont take me that long)
