If you've performed an Express installation then you're SOL. The files are
immediately integrated into the OS and cannot be copied. What you would need
to do is download (or as you're on dial-up ask a friend with DSL to
download) the Network installation which can be found here
(or [url]http://tinyurl.com/171p[/url] if above link wraps). It's about 134MB which
would take about 7 hours or so over a 56K connection so you'd need to find
someone with broadband.
Unfortunately, there is no UK-based link to order SP1a on disc. However, you
might like to call MS UK on 0870 60 10 100 to ask for a Service Pack disc to
be shipped to you - there will probably be a nominal postage charge.
