    XP dowloads (XP Pro)

    This question also applies to Windows XP.

    So I have a new machine at home running Windows XP (home) and Office XP Pro. I have a dial-up modem at 56k here in the UK, but in practice generally get given a connection rated at 42-45k. Actual downloads are clearly slower than that in practice. I have a networked laptop at work (W2K + Office 2000) with a fast connection to the net.

    Is there somewhere on the Microsoft support site that I can just ask for the complete download of e.g. SP1 for Office XP from my work laptop and using the fast connection, without it testing the PC for the appropriateness of the request.

    Thanks

    Try Office XP Update: Service Pack 1.

    What you want for other complete downloads is to look for a link to the 'administrative' download version.
