I did get 3.5 SP1 first--without the part about the Family Update. The Family Update thing just showed up in Microsoft Update after the reboot after installing 3.5 SP1.

That was the only high-priority one it wanted to do. I did that, rebooted, and now it has lots more that it wants to do, including another update to the 3.5 (Update to .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 for the .NET Framework Assistant 1.0 x86).

In addition to lots of Security Updates for Windows XP, there are a couple more related to .NET Framework:

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 SP3 Security Update for Windows XP Tablet PC and Media Center

and

Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 Security Update for Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and Wincows XP.

Still not seeing anything about .NET Framework 1.1.

So far, the only installations that have failed:

Office XP Service Pack 3
Security Update for Microsoft Works 8
Update for Microsoft Silverlight.

I also get that thing prompting me to insert a status disk.

When I reboot and go back into Microsoft Update, it prompts for those 3 failed updates plus Security Update for CAPICOM. Should I try them again? I do have some restore points this time that I can go back to if needed.

OK, I tried a few more times, and I initially couldn't install those. I was away for a few days, and then this morning when I tried, all but the Microsoft Works 8 update installed successfully. I've still been getting the prompt for the status disk.
