Worth reading, IMO, as prepartion before attempting to install SP2:

Get Your PC Ready for Windows XP SP2 - http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/sp2/sp2_whattoknow.mspx

Steps to take before installing Windows XP SP2 - http://www.microsoft.com/smallbusiness/res...ows_xp_sp2.mspx

If your computer is is a "name brand" system (Dell, eMachines, HP, etc.)...I further suggest that you visit their website for any special instructions they may have posted for those who purchased their systems or your particular model.
