I have a different experience, sorry. I resisted the move away from IE6 for
as long as I could. My recollection is that I had to take IE8 when I took
SP3, but my machine had suffered a catastrophic event that demanded a new
HDD and motherboard, and I guess I lost track of what went where and when,
and why it went there. I skipped IE7, and went from 6 to 8. I recall
(wrongly, if you guys are right) that I could not remain with IE6 and SP3,
and I certainly did remain with IE6 and SP2. My assumption based on this is
that IE8 is required with SP3, or that SP3 is required to have IE8. Sorry if
that is not correct, it seemed like that is what my machine demanded when I
had to cross that bridge.
I guess it doesn't matter what my experience is, or what I think it was, the
OP asked if IE8 can be installed on XP running SP3. The asnwer is, yes.
