    Does anyone know where I can get the "Stand Alone" install version of .Net
    3.0. All I can find is the version from the following

    They call this the re-distributable version, but it is NOT as it will
    require an Internet connection for it to download the actual .net 3.0 install
    files. On a dial up service this will take WAY to long. I have many customers
    that can not get this update because they are on dial up. Therefor I need the
    "Stand Alone Complete" Internet independent version of the .Net 3.0 install
    so that I can install it in a "Reasonable" amount of time for them.

    Thanks for your help, and someone please tell Bill to quit screwing over all
    his dial up customers by producing COMPLETE EASY TO FIND FULL installs of ALL
    updates, especially the large ones (anything over 5 meg) so that the dial ups
    with friends who have high speed can get it for them and/or so that the techs
    who have to support Windows, because we all know Microsoft won't, (except
    through the 1-900-IAMGREEDY line), can get them and install them for the

    Thanks again for the help,

    There *is* a link on the above page > To download the full
    redistributable package, rather than the bootstrapper,
    X86 Redist Package

    It's under Step 2 of Instructions
    Download and burn it to a CD to redistribute it to those on dial up.
