RE: Service pack 1 download problems

Is there an answer to this one yet? I'm getting the same error message...only difference is that I'm using a dial-up connection.
I use AOL as my browser - the first time I left it running only to find that AOL had disconnected and interrupted the installation. (separate problem). I tried again, staying with the computer to ensure there was no disconnection. About 95% of the way through the process (I didn't lose the internet connection at any point), I got the same error message you describe. I don't really want to try the version that doesn't require internet connection to install as it will take hours to download.
