Downloads failures

I run WXP & Office XP. I recently tried to download SP3. The download ran for 15 minutes or so then posted a failure message. My internet connection was also terminated.
I have IE6 set to automatically reconnect if there is a disconection, this did not work. I also have plenty of hard disk space.
Suggestions would be welcome

If you are using a dial up modem, quite often the ISP terminates after 20 minutes of "Inactivity" if you have a disconnect warning be ready to click stay connected when it appears.

If you are using a dialup, then I believe you can order the update on their site (UK), they will send out a cd. I did this for the security update patches cd a month ago, you will need a ms passport account though, this is free. Hope this helps.
