I want to install directx 9.0 on a new computer that doesn't have an internet connection. What's the best way to do this? Is it possible to download DX from MS to a 2nd computer without installing it on the 2nd computer.

BTW, what version of dx comes with win xp with sp1?

Cool, thanks. I noticed the redistributable is for software developers. Is it going to install a bunch of other stuff on my computer besides DX9?

Not that I'm aware of. From what I was reading this form of DirectX, as opposed to the Web install, is for people who don't have internet connection, and so game developers/etc. can include it with their game so end users can have the latest version.
