That explains a great deal.
For some reason the CD has not slipstreamed properly, which explains why SFC will not work.

In theory SP3 contains all previous updates but when I built my present PC, XP was already at SP2 so I only slipstreamed up by one version.

Try this, go to HERE and download SP2.
Slipstream that with your SP1 CD and create an ISO do not burn it to CD.
Then slipstream the new ISO with the SP3 file you downloaded the other day.
Make sure you clearly mark each ISO.

If the new ISO which results from that is in the region of the size I quoted, 589MB or above, burn it to CD and check that the other two items are included.

If so, run SFC again.

Sorry for the extra work but at least we know what happened.
