Trying to install Office 2003; get some "Windows XP Service Pack" error message...

I put in the disk for Office 2003 (on XP) and almost immediately get this error message saying there's an incomplete Service Pack download and to visit windows.update.com or whatever.

So I do, then I try and get Service Pack 1 Express. But even on my wireless it says its like 80mb and will take 2 hours. Since I don't actually have wireless (but my downtown has a free access during summer - Orlando), I can't sit there for 2 hours and let it rock.

Any way to get around this?
Any way to delete the partial install?

In Add/Remove programs, I see only like 30 SP1 Hotfixes, and have no idea which is which.

Thanks for any advice -- this is VERY frustrating!!
