Default XP SP1 & SP2 on back up disk

Quick question, I finally got XP SP2 downloaded and installed without any problems. Can I take the SP1 and SP2 files that I downloaded from the windows update and put them on a back up disk? If my computer crashes again, I don't want to redownload everything from windows update. If so, how?

Yes or you can also burn service pack 2 as data on a CD.

and just have it along with your Original XP install CD.
