Default SP2, download from site or wait for windows updater...

Well i decided to reformat, i just feel better. Anyways, i want to update all my drivers, but they say i should have SP2 installed.

Should i download it from the website, or wait for the Windows Updater?

The updater uses bits, which is pretty fast, but if you can find the download, then you can see it come down. Once you get it downloaded, you should make a slipstreamed copy of XP with SP2 and save the hastle next time...

I download the whole file and keep it on a disk for future usage.
