I have a computer that I need to wipe the hard drive and perform a fresh install on.
I'ts a windows xp pro os that is pre windows service pack 2 and I don't want to spend the next twenty years downloading all those windows critical updates again.

So my question is: Is there a way to legally copy all those update files on a cd or is there a way to make things easier for me by getting them by some other method?

Does anybody have any tips or suggestions? thanks

You can go to the Windows Update site and pick the Administrative options. That will allow you to download all the service packs and security patches and apply them at your leasure.
