I would go with the SP3 service pack if i was to make a installation CD from my system. Why go back to any earlier versions?

This is a good read on the subject.

Another good reason to do this is that you will already have your seting where you want them. I, personally , use Norton Ghost for my installations CD's because i have gotten used to using it.
