    Critical updates, but no SP2 (WinXP)

    I've finally decided to instal SP2. Went to the Windows update site and, after much trouble, finally managed to download and instal the new version of windows updater. Then tried to get all the critical updates - it gave me a list of 17, but none of them were marked SP2. Most of them had KB numbers attached.
    Question 1: If SP2 is ot on this list, then where do I get it?
    Question 2: If I get and instal SP2, do I still need to install all these older patches?
    Thanks for your help.

    SP2 (the full download) can be found here . Disregard the info that says this version is only for installing on multiple computers on a network. Once you download and install, check WU again. Most of the updates that you see currently won't appear (they are included in SP2).
