Go to the Windows Update site, and click on "View installation history". Write down all the installed updates, i.e. KB834707, KB873339, etc. Then go to the Windows Update Catalog site here...

http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.co...en/default.asp

...and find each one of the updates that were previously installed. You can then download each one of them indivdually, and save them to disk and burn them.

Unfortunately there's no way to save the updates you already have installed, which is why I suggested the above. This MSKB article may also be of some help to you...

How to download Windows updates and drivers from the Windows Update Catalog

You can download and save them them as mentioned above. If Microsoft automatically cached the updates people would be complaining that Microsoft was stealing their hard disk space.

You can always order an SP2 CD from Microsoft, it is not expensive.
