SP2 was 256MB alone when it was first released (although the installation only used what was necessary according to the version of XP).

Yup - roundabout that I would think - a real SP1a CD I have here is 525MB.

The size of an image might depend what you mean by an image - and SP2 will be a little different from SP1a.

How have you got an image, as opposed to a real XP CD?
