    Backup disk for SP1 ?

    I have installed SP1 about 5 days ago. I'd like to know how to make a backup
    disk of SP1, just in case ? Thank you.

    Gordon,
    The " stand alone " is 434.5 MB. That is out of the question. The one I
    installed was only 38.5MB, in less that 2 hours.
    I am looking for a way to burn the SP1 that I had installed to a disk. Thank
    you.

    That big one is the ONLY downloadable SP1 that is available. It
    contains all the possible elements that may be needed. Your version
    was a "custom" version provided after WU scanned your system to
    determine what YOU needed.

    You should not need SP1 again unless you uninstall it for some reason.
    If you're on a dialup account, then you'll just have to bite the
    bullet.
