    MY Blog has the answer

    'X3's Greener Grass: Link Layer Topology Discovery (KB922120) not
    included in SP3 no problem!!! Read on...'
    (http://x3webworx3.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!E40FC8E37C2475AE!234.entry)

    but for those that I just came here to leave a link and can be bothered
    how to read here goes



    So imagine that like me, you slipstreamed the latest Service pack onto
    your existing install disk to make a clean install of XP (insert your
    edition here) and found out like me that the LLTD while its on the list
    of updates included with SP3 its not really... Go figure... It happens
    really... or does it?
    LLTD just makes it way easier for Vista to see XP in its network map
    and maybe even make it easier for you to get things working together
    dure goes help... I see it like a scaled down version of Cisco CDP...
    Moving on :)
    Download the 'LLTD windowsXP-KB922120-v5-ENU.exe'
    (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...1D-EE46-481E-BA11-37F485FA34EA&displaylang=en),
    running it will give you a error not allowing you to install it, but
    there is a way around it... Seriously! Keep reading!
    I figured that since it was working when first tried SP3 via WU and I
    had this update already that there is no reason why this makes any
    sense... So I Googled as one does. I looked at 'this topic'
    (http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...c2-b6a5-baab39a44d86&cat=&lang=&cr=&sloc=&p=1)
    and quite honestly some idiot saying on thar topic that "All the KB's
    you mentioned were new features added to Windows XP after release of
    SP2.They would not be added to SP3, but instead be refreshed to install
    on SP3" makes me wonder why bother with comments like this... Clearly
    you need to do some reading Mr. whatever your name is... Sounds like
    something I wouldn't eat... Anyhow?! This is the advice someone as a
    MSFT title should provided regarding the LLTD...
    A 'topic on Microsoft discussion group'
    (http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...c2-b6a5-baab39a44d86&cat=&lang=&cr=&sloc=&p=1)
    pointed towards 'http://support.microsoft.com/kb/828030'
    (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/828030) in how to extract a update to
    your HDD as part of the solution and then place these files on Windows
    Directory and system32 folder and then run the service... ok pretty easy
    eh? nope. What file goes where so here it is... you will also need to
    set folder options to view hidden files.
    Please do the following:


    - Rename the *LLTD WindowsXP-KB922120-v5-ENU.exe*
    windowsXP-KB922120-v5-ENU.exe to a simpler name e.g. *922120 *and
    place it on e.g. *C:\*
    - Click Start button navigate to run prompt and type in cmd and press
    enter or click ok (a black window will open)
    - Type the following in the command prompt (cursor blinking)
    *cd c:\*

    Then type in command window

    *c:\922120.exe -x:c:\922120*

    Files will extract to folder named *922120* and pressuming that the
    package is now downloaded and extracted all you need is to concentrate
    on the folder named SP2QFE.

    Inside you will find a file named *rspndr.sys* place it inside your
    C:\Windows\System32\Drivers directory, *rspndr.exe* should be placed
    inside your C:\Windows\System32 directory and finally the *rspndr.inf*
    which is inside the IP named folder, should be placed inside your
    (previously) hidden C:\Windows\Inf directory.

    Now you all done! Start the service by opening a cmd prompt window
    again navigating to directory by typing cd C:\Windows\System32 directory
    and issuing the following command once there on same prompt window.
    *rspndr.exe -i* (then tap enter duh!)
    You should receive a confirmation that the service is installed and by
    opening your NIC card properties you will confirm by reviewing that
    there is a checked entry for Link Layer Topology Discovery.
    On another note maybe it would be better to 'rollup and add this and
    other missing KB's in the disk before slipstreaming SP3'
    (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/814847) and then maybe we could avoid
    it altogether. Or wait until Microsoft is good and ready to release yet
    another stream of updates to go on top of SP3 and fix this or similar
    issues. One can wait or do it himself. erm feeling like XP SP4 anyone?

    Obviously my blog has all the links for which I cant past a format
    here.

    ANYwho Im not a MVP I dont work in IT no one gives me a job and yet
    lookie here.

    Someone has really dropped the ball onn that last interview I went.

    XS3: You're awesome. This is still a valid and useful solution (which i
    why I've bumped this thread to help other people hunting for thi
    solution). This was a straightforward, elegant solution, and include
    the obviously implied methods for other such situations. You've saved m
    a bunch of time. Thank you
