    I want to install SP1 on my home m/c but it's a slow link (file size is approx 1GB) and I want to download SP1 on another machine (XP) with a faster link and then run it on my m/c.

    When I try and download from Microsoft it says XP m/c illegal action (or some such).

    So far I have been unable to find a copy I can download on a XP m/c.

    It checks your machine for legality prior to downloading....I do not think there is a site to download SP1 that will not do this. Of course I do not really look for those.
