A friend of my wife has a PC which is giving endless problems, she wants me to do a full restore which will take it back to a pre Servicepack 1 version of XP. Question - will installing SP2 from CD alone bring it right up to date without installing SP1 first?

I have the full SP2 on disc, she only has dial up, hence my query.

Thanks sjbell, that was the definitive answer I was looking for. Quote from the Microsoft Knowledge Base

This article lists the problems that are fixed in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2). Service packs are cumulative. This means that the problems that are fixed in a service pack are also fixed in later service packs. For example, Windows XP SP2 contains all the fixes that are included in Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1). You do not have to install an earlier service pack before you install Windows XP SP2.
