When I run the MDAC setup routine that comes with SQL Server SP5(a) why does it re-invoke the service pack setup?

A. Because you didn't expand the sp5 file with the /d option. It will then create the i386/mdac folder with the mdac exe file in it. When run from this sub-directory it will invoke the right setup program.
