You could download SP2 from Microsoft - then extract it to a folder. Then when the install ask for files point it to this folder.

Thew only problem with downloading sp2 is that it comes as a self executing file. Unless there is another sorce?

Have you got sp2 installed on your system ? if you have xp should install the fax console without problems

You can download SP_2 from here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=049C9DBE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displa...

but it is a very large download and its still an executable ,as morrisinc says you can extract it to a folder

the easiest way if you need the files from a folder is to get an sp2 update disk and copy it over to your pc

there are loads of these about as most pc magazines have been giving them away for ages and you can pick them up from most pc stores, i know pc world still give them out, or ask around one of your friends might have one

if you get stuck and cant find one PM me your address and ill send you one

You can extract the SP2 to its file form WITHOUT installing.

Downlaod to a folder Eg C:\SP2

Save the full download here - (Called Network Install In MS site)

then from a command prompt (DOS Box) run the SP2.EXE -x this extract the Service Pack to the current folder - if you saved the in the example above, it will be in c:\sp2

I've used this command to extract this to be able to slipstream SP2 in to XP to create XP CD with SP2.
