I don't know, but you could install a download manager with a 'resume' function like Star click here choose pro at $9.95 or the free version. HTH TR

You used to be able order it on CD. I'll try and track it down.

I think your on a hiding to nothing trying to download it from from the internet, it's nearly a 4 hour download,(56k modem)for the winxp sp1 home ed.

I got mine from a DVD which a colleague at work lent me. He got it from, dare I say it"PC Pro" magazine.

I,m sure there are pc outlets or even Microsoft uk that will sell it on a cd rom.

Good luck..............bretsky;)0

They don't make it easy do they. I can't find the download area anymore. If someone can tell me whether I can burn a copy of my XP SP1 CD and send it to Tree3 with breaching the EULA etc. please let me know?

I'd still be interested in an answer to the question I posted at 20:18
