Speed up Visual Studio 2005 SP1 install

The SP1 of Visual Studio 2005 was out, and it was (almost) great.

Why almost? If you have tried to install it, then you must know. It takes a LOT of time to run. And it uses a LOT of resources. If you do not believe me, take a look at what Ayende has been writing while installing it.

Luckily, Jon Gallowai has blogged about a patch to shorten the setup time.

Take a look, if you care for you cpu time.
