    I don't think there is any such thing as the "minimum" files. Recommendation: go to the Microsoft web pages and do what needs to be done.

    200 MB? 266 MB, surely! By Microsoft's calculations, that's just a 25-minute download on something as slow as a T1 line. Although you can get an unspecifiedly-smaller download using Windows Update.

    It's amazing to realise that SP2 became available during early/mid August 2004, over 2

    The preliminary date for the release of SP3 is the first half of 2008 - Windows Service Pack Road Map

    If you want a mimimum install let Windows/Microsoft Update do it. The update process examines your system and only downloads what you need. I'd recommend that you download the whole service pack and burn it to a cd. That way you have it in case you need it again. Also, you can slipstream Sp-2 with your original CD and have an integrated version for a reinstall.
