    there are the express and the full version.
    the full version of SP1 is about 130MB, but the express one lets you decide which updates you want.

    I think it is better to get the full service pack and make a slipstream cd. Even if you do not use it to install SP1 it will be useful if you want to add Windows components or use the System File Checker (SFC).
