You're in the Windows folder...the ServicePackFiles folder is in there somewhere...or should be.

I'll see if I can find it on an installations cd.

Do you have a floppy drive on both machines?

Or a burner?

I've attached the file it's looking for as a zip file. Download it and extract the file. Put it on a cd or floppy...whichever you have...and browse to it on the laptop.

This is getting wierd...

Let's do a parallel install and grab the data off the old install. Is there room on the HDD for two installations? We'll remove one in a bit. We'll need about 4 gigs.
