XP Add / Remove Programs Problem

  1. I am trying to install some windows components on my XP system
    So I go into Control Panel and select Add Remove programs.
    I then select Add Remove windows components and then
    tick the component I want.
    The install starts but then requests the XP Professional SP2 CD.
    The problem is the system was built from an XP CD and then
    SP2 update downloaded.
    I have tried the original CD and two XP Pro SP2 CDs - it rejects
    the files on all of them.
    Any suggestions?

    Are the SP2 CDs the update CDs or SP Pro SP2 install CDs?
