Win XP Pro auto update wont see or download SP3

I want to install XP SP3, Window's auto update cant see it & I cant find it to install manually ?
Are there other updates that I need before it finds it through Microsoft's Windows updates automatically ?

I would wait till the automatic update comes out.I had the beta version installed deleted that and ran the full version which crashed my computer and had to do a reformat.No more beta versions for me.

Thanks brundle,
Downloaded that in 8 mins using the Bit Comet link.
Installed it having done a back up, with antiovirus disabled & it crashed, could not write to memory etc & would not complete.
Recovered it back via the roll back & de-installed.
I'll wait to patch Tuesday for the auto update now !

Worked fine for me, slipstreamed into an XP Pro CD and installed on a Virtual Machine....
