SP1 causes very little turmoil and should not be feared. You
definitely want the Anti-Dcom vulnerablity patches though. I believe
they are #s 283573 824146 828741. You can get them through the MS
update site, or I can send them to you if you need. An alternative is
to ghost image a machine, apply sp2 and test all software [or get your
users to - they tend to find problems that systems persons are unaware
of]. If there are incompatability problems you can image back to the
previous state while you research workarounds. V
