slipstreaming Sp3

  Pamy 10:40 16 May 2008

Hello everyone

I want to slipstream Sp3 with my Xp pro disk. I have the info how to do it, but cannot find where to download Sp3 from without installing it. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks Marg7, I saw that ne but it is for networks and contains more than just Sp3, will that be OK for what I want to do?

just check ms updates it states sp3 kb936929

ok, since installing had no problems with ms
updates 4 i think gone on, i would have thought
if it was a dodgy copy ms would not up date to it
or some nasty warning,watch this space as they say

many thanks your time
