Hi Colleen,
MS has delayed the release again from;

Microsoft Delays Automatic Update Rollout:
Microsoft has decided to suspend the rollout of Windows XP Service Pack 2
(SP2) via Automatic Updates, in order to provide its corporate customers
with more time to install an SP2 download blocking mechanism, that the
company provided last week.

For this reason, XP Home users will start receiving XP SP2 via Automatic
Updates starting on Thursday, August 18, while XP Professional users will
start receiving the update via Automatic
Updates on Thursday, August 25.

A summary of the altered delivery schedule for Windows XP SP2:
August 6 - Release to manufacturing
August 9 - Release to Microsoft Download Center (full network installation
package); release to MSDN subscription site (CD ISO image)
August 10 - Release to Automatic Update (for machines running pre-release
versions of Windows XP SP2 only)
August 16 - Release to Software Update Services
August 18 - Release to Automatic Update for users running Windows XP Home
Edition only
August 25 - Release to Automatic Update for all Windows XP users including
those running Windows XP Professional Edition; release to Windows Update for
interactive user installations
++ There is more on the web site.
