Chill out to some heavy reading...

😛

Seriously? Read up on it. SP2 shouldn't be that bad, but then again,
it's MS so you never know sometimes. No amount of re-assurance from any
newsgroup would make me feel comfortable over researching testing it myself.

I also found this online...

Good Luck!



"If you have the R2 discs for SP1, you will have to uninstall SP2 first
and then you can install R2 and then upgrade it to SP2. I've tried
keeping SP2 on there and I am not able to upgrade to R2. The other
option is to buy a new media kit for R2 with SP2. If the solutions
above actually work, please let me know, but I think you will have to
uninstall SP2 first and then upgrade to R2."

No R2... Need to update EXCHANGE first... Sp2 IMO is a more important
upgrade than WinSP2...

No wonder why all these spams are coming through.

Sorry, I have promised to go now and "beat the stuffin's" out of my kid, at
her repeated request. I'm sorry you have to put effort into one of the dark
side's wares, and all by yourself besides. If I could, I'd send you some
good Wisconsin beer to help you through it.

I did it on my test print server, well semi production but anyways it only
has 256 megs ram.
SP2 took 2 hours to install.
No problems.
