Windows XP Service Pack 3..?

Hello, For the holidays I got a Canon Rebel, But that's not the point. I installed the software, nothing went wrong. But when I plug my camera in, the "Found new Hardware Wizard" pops up, and asks to install the camera stuff. Which is normal. But when I click "Next>" it searches for something, And then says

"Please insert the Compact Disk labelled 'Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 CD' into your CD-ROM drive (E:) then click OK. You can also click OK if you want files to be copied from an alternate location, such as a floppy disk or a network server."

Well, I tried to download and install it from the Windows Update Centre. Turns out I don't have the Windows XP Service Pack 2. So I tried to install that. I waited for it .. And it says "The following update was not completed: The 2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 2 (SP2)"

As I can see, that is for Microsoft Office. I have tried downloading IT Professionals and it doesn't work either.. can someone please help.. ?


It says I need Service Pack 2 to get SP3 ..
