.NET 3.5 and 3.5 sp1 were the only servicing vehicles for Vista/Win2k8.

Some more background overall on the .NET releases:

The reason for this is the underlying updates to the .NET Framework 2.0/3.0 subcomponents have interdependencies, updates also ship in the Vista/Win2k8 OS service packs, and because the full product really is .NET 3.5 and 3.5 sp1.
.NET 2.0/3.0/3.5 sp1 are not side-by-side framework releases but rather iterative feature layer additions to maximize compatability while adding features.
There were servicing updates for .NET 2.0/3.0 for Vista/Win2k8 SP1 which effectively bring it up to the .Net 2.0/3.0 "sp1" level, and likewise for Vista/Win2k8 SP2 to bring them up to the .NET 2.0/3.0 "sp2" level. As OS component updates, those are not referred to as service packs but rather component updates, but the integration and release timing does equate to when the noted pre-Vista OS "sp" vehicles were released for .NET.
The current recommended servicing level for customers is .NET framework 3.5 sp1. As a side note worth mentioning,there are a few migration issues in moving from pre-Vista to Vista/Win2k8 OS which are resolved by uninstall/re-install for 3.5 sp1 after an OS upgrade. The reason for those issues are due to the use of different deployment technologies between pre-Vista and Vista/Win2k8 for .NET and inclusion within the OS itself.

Hope this helps with a better understanding of the .NET release vehicles and relationship within the .NET product itself.
