    Is this the .bin/.cue version

    Open Nero, then cancel the wizard
    Recorder > Burn image
    At the bottom select "all files"
    Select your Windows XP .bin file
    make sure the block size says 2048
    Then hit "Burn"

    There you have it, 1 Bootable windows xp + SP2 Disk

    If its just WinXP Service Pack 2 you want.

    You can download an SP2 .exe file from Microsoft for free right here...

    Just burn it as a data disk.

    @ peat: That's the impression I got...

    Autostreamer is the simplest way I've seen to merge service packs into an XP CD, with an option to make the CD bootable.

    if it's just an iso then just burn the CD like normal with nero, assuming the ISO was made bootable you should be fine.
