i was thinking of doing a fresh installation of xp home on my pc, would the service pack 2 be on the cd or does it have to be downloaded from the microsoft website ?

For the home edition its a download - - there are quite a lot of CD`s with SP2 on its a standard item now, certainly with the industry. I copied mine and sent it to my son some months ago - -- -no one got a copy??

Any (legitimate) version of XP purchased after SP2 was released (August 2004??) will include SP2

You could at one time order a copy of SP2 free of charge from MS,i dunno if they still do that,i know i got one free from them from an online order on there website was sometime ago now though.

How old is your copy of XP? if SP2 is on it it should say XP Home inc SP2 or similar.
