The theme of this post is to bring to your notice the fact that Windows Service Packs are cumulative and includes all updates from the previous ones.
This means that if, for example, your XP CD has neither SP1 nor SP2 integrated, you can still go ahead and install Windows XP SP3.
Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) is now available for download and install via Windows Update and the Microsoft Download Center. Windows XP SP3 includes all previously released updates for the operating system, in addition to a small number of new updates. Windows XP SP3 will not significantly change the Windows XP experience.
If you are planning to upgrade to Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3), please do read a little more about it on the internet. SP3 is a very new release and might have lots of bugs, the best way to handle such releases is by going slow with the adoption. PC World also reports about the bug in Windows XP SP3 causing some AMD Systems to crash.
To control the installation of SP3 in your system, please read my earlier post on Controlling Automatic Updates.
