<br />So, you're trying to add SP2 into a WinXP installation, right? 
<br />
<br />Where do you currently have your SP2 image? If it's on a CDROM, then
<br />just point Windows to that CDROM or a IMAGE of it.

<br />I'm not sure what youre trying to do here. But I suspect $WINDOWS is
<br />probably not set to the right thing ($something means the "shell
<br />variable something", and the error message indicates that you didn't
<br />have anything in the variable called WINDOWS - not that case matters).
<br />
<br />However, be the $WINDOWS what it may, you also have to bear in mind that
<br />Linux is unable to write to a NTFS partition (other than modifying
<br />existing files), so if your filesystem is NTFS, even if you have the
<br />files there, you'll not be able to copy the files to the NTFS partition.
