Try downloading and install the Service Pack 2 Network Install. The total file size is 250MB+, if you have dial-up have Microsoft send you a Serivce Pack 2 CD. Use the following link to order a CD:

Service Pack 2 CD

Hope that this helps.

Microsoft coded Service pack two so that it will not install with known pirated software.

If you believe this message is in error, you should contact Microsoft.

that would be entirerly up to you...

Some places sell "Certificates of Authenticity" with cd-keys and no media--never quite understood if that was legal or not....
