Try using the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to see what it says
about those components?

Be more specific? For example, I see a Repair button when I use the
[Click here for Support information.] link in the Add or Remove Programs
entry for Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1
Is that what you are using?
Is this an automatic install or a manual one? If you do a manual install
you may get better messages displayed.
In any case you are likely to find more clues in the extensive log files that .NET
installs create and possibly even in the Event log.
BTW I noticed that NF 3.5 knew about its pre-req's and installed them for me.
Perhaps NF 3.0 does the same? FWIW I was impressed with how complete
the diagnostics were. They may not be that obvious; you have to look for them,
but that is just a matter of doing a search for files which changed on the day
of the update and then sorting the results by Date Modified.
You may even be able to reduce the search space to just your
TEMP folders in case that optimization appeals to you.
