.NET framework 2.0's SP2 is shipped as an integral part of frmework 3.5 SP1 right?. I would like to ask why it was not provided as a separate install becas one may not want to install 3.0/ 3.5. If there is some planning going on to release it separately
can any one open the secret?. By the way there are some bootstraps for this
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vs2008/bb898654.aspx but after reading, it dosent sound good.
.net 3.5 sp1
.net 3.5 service pack 1

That is right .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 is intergrated within 3.5 SP1.
2.0 SP2 is required for many other MS products i.e. Sql Server 2008.

The two are integrated because the .Net 3.5 framework, works ontop of the .net 2.0 framework. So obviously 2.0 needs to be stable for 3.0 or 3.5 to work properly. For example, even though you are using the 3.5 framework, in IIS your application will still
show that it is using .NET 2.0 Framework, and this is becuase 3.5 is built on top of 2.0. The 2 have to co-exist in order for 3.5 to function.
