XP reload. Why is microsoft SP1 taking so long

  Ive 20:55 18 Jul 04

Redoing windows update after XP reload but the exclusive item SP1 is taking so long. The open box is at present showing, download progress
the install progress bar reached the far right end over an hour ago and nothing seems to be happening.If you click the X it says if you navigate away from this page the intallation will fail so click cancel to stay on the current page.
Do I carry on waiting or is something wrong.
