Be careful with it though but I'll just move this to the "Other OS" forum though. Oh and I got rid of the other threads too as one is enough. : peace2:

Just to let you know, SP3 for W2k will not upgrade any of the 'abused' registration codes that exist.

Well I found this that may interest some of you while I was looking unsucessfully for that huge list of bug fixes, Windows 2000 CD SlipStream Guide (http://www.ntcompatible.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21978), which allows you (network admins) to burn a Windows 2000 CD with all service packs included. ;)

Thats not exactly new, its been possible since win2ksp1.

The list of bug fixes still exists @ the MS site, but they categorised it. I hardly think anyone would want to sift through 14+ pages of fixes when one can just click on a category sub-heading and see what was fixed/added.

These may intrest some network admins as well:
Win2k SP3 Support Tools (http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/servicepacks/prem_sp3/supporttools.asp)
Win2k SP3 Deployment Tools (http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/servicepacks/prem_sp3/deploytools.asp)

yer talking about autoupdate, and you get rid of it the same way as you do on winMe and XP

"control panel works wonders" is all the hint you need ;)

There was an article on it @ www.theregus.com talking about how when you agree to the EULA on SP3 and WinXP SP1 you are giving them root access to your box so they can upgrade you anytime they want.
