You shouldn't get this message when you try to download, but you may get it
when trying to install. IE8 requires at least Service Pack 2 on Windows XP,
it's right there on the system requirements in the installation
instructions. Did you read the installation instructions?
Microsoft really should have put a version detection into the installer to
avoid all this, popping up a message saying "You need to install Service
Pack 2 or higher" would have made this step a whole lot simpler ...
