What do you exactly mean by: i would also like to know if i placed an order for SP3 cd would i be able to skip all the preparation in order to install with minimum interaction?
Now I understand what you mean.... what garmanma said: Not really, all you're doing is changing the method of install.
it's installing from a CD rather than downloading it but the installing process and steps is mainly the same. It's still the same service pack, so everything should be fairly the same.
