The page says : "This installation package is intended for IT professionals and developers downloading and installing on multiple computers on a network. If you're updating just one computer, please visit click here."

What is the difference between the standalon version and networked version. Someone told me that the network version is the same as the one for individual computers, except for the fact that the newtork version can be downloaded as a WHOLE UPDATE , and individual versions can be done through windowsupdate. True?

That's what I'd like to know. I'm stuck on dialup at home and there is no way I can use automatic update to get this.

I have just downloaded the whole thing here at work. Took 15 minutes. As said, I just need to know if I can use this at home. Hopefully it will pick the bits that are needed. Going to put it on a CD anyway.

Have just downloaded the above and installed it on my home system running XP Pro. No problems at all whatsoever.

Great, thanks for that info. I have copied it to CD, so will take it home tonight and maybe take a deep breath or two.
