Default Install Updates BEFORE installing SP2?

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition and I have not yet
installed SP2. When I go into "Windows Updates" I notice
that I have 16 "High Priority Updates" to install (these
16 Updates are mostly Security and Critical Updates and
their total combined size is 22 MB.
HERE IS MY QUESTION: Should I install all of these "High
Priority Updates BEFORE I install SP2. Microsoft suggests
I run these High Priority Updates before installing SP2 in
order to ensure a successfull installation of SP2.
However, I was thinking that some of these Updates are
already a part of SP2 and they would therefore be
reduntant.
Any suggestions as to whether I should install the updates
before installing SP2?

FAQ #3
Do I need to install Service Pack 1 or any other updates before installing
Service Pack 2?
No, Service Pack 2 is cumulative and includes all prior Critical Updates.
There is also no need to uninstall any previous updates.

Can't go wrong if you install the updates first, before

you install SP2. Otherwise you may create a problem for
yourself. hfc

SP 2 is cumulative: It installs all security updates and bug fixes
previously issued that are not already on your system.

Note to the OP: Don't let yourself get that far behind!
