And don't forget to read the link at the bottom: quick tips for a successful upgrade.

Good luck, and happy downloading of SP2

Pretty sporting of M$ to offer it (the CD) free (plus S&H). Well worth it if you don't want to download it.

Thanks for that link. :thumbsup: The disk I had SP2 on came from the University and expired in 2004! I have now ordered the disk from Microsoft, and that one won't expire. Comes to $3.49 U.S. total if shipped in the U.S.A. More, of course, if shipped out of the country.

I tried that once few weeks ago.
Microsoft collected all sorts of information about my system only to tell me at the end that I have to get it from OEM support :thumbsup:

That doesn't sound right. They encourage people to share the SP2 disk, they want people to have it.
