I am repairing my xp pro install but once I have done it I will have to reinstall SP2. Is that all I need to do or must I install SP1 first

Yes install SP1 first,then SP2 after is the best way,don't worry it will create a backup as well.

Before you install SP2 Check all of the links regarding Antiviral software conflicts with SP2(especially Norton)

....SP2 includes all the SP1 updates, patches etc.

What you will have to do, once SP2 has been installed, is to add the updates to SP2 and XP that have been issued since SP2 was released last August as soon as possible.

when i recently formatted my comp, i was only given the option of SP2 to download, so i would guess that you only need 2

If you slipstream your Windows XP Pro installation with SP2, you can do all this in one step.

You don't need to guess - it's a fact...:-)

However, if anyone requires written proof, here's Microsoft's SP2 roundup:
