Try downloading the entire executable seprately from the autoupdate site..then launch the installer that way and see if it runs for you..

It means you put all the SP2 files onto the XP cd, so SP2 is installed by default. It really isn't that hard you just need to have a CD burner, the SP2 exe file, XP cd, and a blank cd.
