    XP SP2 & IBM (SP1)

    Hello,
    I just read somewhere that IBM is telling folks (not sure if it is employees or customers) to hold off on installing SP2. Anyone else heard this? Someone said it has something to do with legacy programs that wouldn't be compatible (not sure what that means). Just wondering if I should install. I have a new IBM T41 Thinkpad, just got all the IBM updates installed...don't want to go through that again, if SP2 will cause problems. Anyone out there installed SP2 on their Thinkpad? Would like to know....anxious to install SP2.

    Nancy,
    This is for the IBM corporate installations. Any company needs to do due diligence in testing SP-2 with all the internal and thrid party applications. As long as you have a good backup of your data at a minimum or your whole system (even better), I'd say go for it. SP-2 will cause problems in some setups but for the vast majority of users it will install just fine. Here's a place to start reading What to Know Before You Download and Install SP-2

    Nancy,

    Good luck!!! You might want to twirl around at least twice, and say some appropriate majic words. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> Of course that would be to just pass the time while SP-2 is being installed. <img src=/S/noevil.gif border=0 alt=noevil width=25 height=17>
