corporate is for corporations (usually when you buy it you get a volume license key)
retail is the one for the avverage user you can buy in the store, oposite to OEM, it can be still used when you change the mainboard in your pc, or your pc.

As for updated releases, I remember that when I purchased by copy of XP Home in late 2003, the XP installation disc I got was already slipstreamed with SP1+all latest updates. If you order another Windows XP license today, you will probably get an updated version with SP2 + updates.

Microsoft has always had a policy of supplying you with the latest full CD if you returned your old one. This isnt about just the SP2 updates, they will supply the O/S + updates. Doubt it will have all updates that we need for SP3 which hopefully will be out one day.
There is no need to get a new licence to get access to this. Same as you can return your win 95, 98 and update CD for XP and they will return a full XP CD, which obviously includes everything to SP2. The other updates you will still need to download. 90 odd updates. Compiled myself for the same reason. These will as Lucian said are either slipstreamed or installed via the site.
If XPSunny wants to install fresh on others computers, slipstreaming is the only way to avoid using your internet allowance until Microsoft release another service pack, or downloading seperately and saving to disk, and going through all the prompts to install the 90 one at a time. The sooner the better they release it too.

I've found many sites that provide fully updated versions of windows xp but they are not at all reliable.
If anyone finds a site that has Windows XP SP2 fully updated version uploaded on their servers then please let me know the site....

The only other way is to get all the updated files slipstreamed into Windows. Not a simple process.
