You downloaded the Express Install version, didn't you? Ok.
Have a friend or someone at work with a CD burner to download the Network Install for IT Professionals version of SP2. That is the full 120MB version with no extra downloading necessary. That could be burned onto CD, then you could take that CD and do your upgrade.
Now, I would run SP4, since it is the current service pack for Win2K. You can get it here:

Alternatively you can ring Microsoft and they will send you the service pack on CD.
I agree with Mr. Moore....skip SP1 or two and just use the most recent service pack - 4
