I have been asked to help installing an early version of XP on an old machine currently running W2K
This will I think need the service packs.
Question will I need to put in 1 2 &3 or is 3 a combined version
or what?

If you use SP2 and SP3 you will be covered for all three - SP2 includes SP1.

If this was me;

I would be installing sp2 and then get my drivers all upto date and wait for sp3 to arrive via automatic updates.

There is an issue with sp3 and xp Media Centre 2002 though i doubt this will affect you.
