Yes it will, that is if you have automatic updates on
It will determine what your need and download the patches and updates
Or alternatively, you can download the whole package in one installer, which is especially helpful if your going to load it on several computers

I have SP 1a and mine downloads service pack 2 every time i format and reinstall.

It's a pain everytime as it still takes a while on a 512kb.

You can always order a SP2 CD; that's what i did.

Not worth it really, download the Technet Version of SP2 for Administrators, save it to a CD.
