    Post Win2k: Which service pack?

    As the topic, which service pack do you think is the best choice for Win2k Pro? I ask because I'll soon be reinstalling my main system, and would like to install the best possible service pack on the clean install (I've heard of people having problems installing service packs on older, dirty installs). Advice appreciated.

    SP4. I've not had problems and on a fresh install at least you're not messing up a lot of work.

    Remember that each service pack contains all the previous updates too.

    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I've got SP3, but only because I don't see any advantages of SP4 and I've got SP3 on CD already (and I just can't be bothered). If you're doing a fresh install though, I don't see any reason not to install SP4.
