-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Reformatting

Yes, I know and I read the post,  but as far as I know there IS no cd that 
has any more updates than the one I sent the link to. (Administrators MAY 
have one but they have surely paid for that service)
You have to download the newer updates and make YOUR own CD before you 
format. Then you can run the sp2 cd and the later downloads from your own 
cd.

Actually, when I have to format I just run the sp2 disk and it is enough to 
get me to windows update and download the MOST critical updates.
