    I don't know if SP2 has anything to do with your problem, but you should get your java from the owners: Sun

    Most of these games are java based, so yes, you'll need java to be able to play.

    You should be able to install java on an SP1 XP but you do need Windows Installer 2.0.

    Why is she hooked up to the internet without SP2??
