Hi Eric,

I've already decided I'll take a chance and just use SP2 when I need to.   I 
can follow instructions ok (I graduated Junior High)  and I can make that silly 
cd but I don't want to waste my time.   Why reinvent the wheel?

  Hi Carl,

  When Bill kindly sent me a new CD containing SP2, it took me just 20 minutes 
to install on each of four computers, and it installed perfectly, no problems 
encountered. The closest thing to a problem was a "false" error message from 
Nero 6 stating it does not recognise the OS and cannot work. But I ignored the 
message and went ahead and Nero burned a data CD for me perfectly! I have since 
downloaded the latest Nero 6, which no longer has the false error report.

  Guess what - it's Spring here, the grass is green, the trees are budding, the 
birds are singing... we did have a cold day on Sunday but it has warmed up 
again - what a beautiful world we live in!!

    Step 14 will get you.    Funny, this man  Fred Langa  says to make your own 
boot cd for Windows xp SP2 and it'll save an hour of time when you need to 
reinstall SP2;  but it'll take 2 days to make.    And for lay people like me 
that does not know that much about software, we'll make a mistake along the way 
and the darn cd will not work when needed.    To make that cd one has to delete 
a file and then add it back from a different source.   I can just see it now;   
my system crashed and I restore the system back to factory settings and then 
update it with this new type bootable cd and ............... opps, it doesn't 
work.    Now what.    I've wasted 2 days making a useless cd.
