    I'm on dialup, and I format somewhat often. Does anyone know if there is a "temp" folder or something of that nature where I can get the patches I've downloaded? It takes me a good 5-6 hours to download them all, even after installing SP1 (which I have on a CD). I would like to put these patches on a CD and then make a batch file to install all of them (I don't need help with this though :)).

    Dang, I didn't want to have to redownload the patches (which will take forever).. but alas, it appears I will have to either way. Thanks, both of you!
