I recently had a PC crash. I had to wipe the HD, FDisk, format then re-install XP, isntall SP 2 then finally all of the updates beyond SP 2. The longest part fo the process was isntallign all of the updates. I downloaded them at work where there is an OC3 that I can use instead of my slower dialup link. But installing them one by one took quite some time.
Does Microsoft offer rollups of all of the updates beyond SP2? Would help me a lot, if I ever need to do this again.
