Do yourself a favor and go to the Microsoft web site and order the Service Pack 2 CD, it is free and always handy if you need to do a reinstall.

ETA: you can also download Service Pack 2 CD and burn it to a CD.

Better yet - have someone update your XP install CD to a slipstreamed SP2 version.

Slipstreaming integrates the updates in to the Windows XP install files. Then you make a new bootable CD with the updated installation files, so you end up with a Windows XP CD that includes the Service pack.

This makes for a much more streamlined installation process which is very important in a corporate environment where you might be dealing with very many computers at once.

Follow the instructions above and it should work for you.
