I was just wondering if the SP1 Pack for Win2k is worth the upgrade? I have heard that it may mess your system up. Also what is the correct way to install this upgrade? Right after your Win2k Install?

It might depend on what you are doing. I didn't have any problems.

I have heard of 1 problem and that is with old version of Zonealarm. If you did the update to SP1 and had Zonealarm installed you would not be able to access the net.

I did the update from Windows Update and had no probs, its a big download though so you better have broadband.

Zonealarm has a patch now for the SP1 problems.....

So??? Is it worth the upgrade? Anyway Ive been getting a few Blue Screen Start-Ups during my Installation (this is after Ive applied the SP1 Pack) However it went away by itself (weird). Is this normal?
