It appears you may be downloading the XP SP2 upgrade - which is 150 + Mb.
It also sounds as though your dial-up may only be operating at 2-3Kbs (and it could
be slowed further depending on what other applications may be active on your system.)
You could opt to order the free SP2 CD from MSN. It will take a week to several
to get to you via USPS. (It is larger 250 Mb+, but usually installs in under an hour.)
You might also choose to peruse posts relating to XP SP2 upgrades further back in the
"Operating Systems -> Windows XP/NT/2000/2003" forum.
Feel free to ask more questions in this thread. Someone will jump in and help out.
