...?

What does SP1 have to do with your drivers?

And although SP1 exists somewhere on the Microsoft site...SP2 is what you want. Connect to WinUpdate...update...be happy...

SP2 is the newest version of XP. You'll be fine.

Unless of course you already have SP2 and are getting that error. At which point you're SOL and I'd say you should get a new mobo as that's pretty f'd up.

You're going to want to install SP2. It's cumulative so it will include whatever from SP1 that your drivers are looking for.

Here's the link to download it from the microsoft website.
Download WinXP Service Pack 2

Yeah. It's right next to the "English Language Guide" and "Civility for Dummies" books.
