How crucial is it to download and install XP service pack 2, if i am running nortons firewall and antivirus. If i do need sp2, do i need to uninstall nortons first?

I wondered about it maybe I have listened to the wrong people. I have not installed SP2 because I here that if you are running some old software it can cause problems?. second question is if you dont install do you still get Windows updates because the only update I get from windows is SP2?.
