Windows 2000 SP1 to SP4 upgrade



Just picked up an old laptop from a friend that still has 2000 Pro SP1 on it.
Can I upgrade straight to SP4, or do I have to install each SP?

Just upgrade directly to SP4. Service packs are cumulative. Each
successive service pack includes all the fixes from previous Service
packs. SP4 includes the fixes in SP1, 2 & 3.

After you install SP4 there are other *very* important fixes to apply.

Get the others from the Update Centre.

Make sure that you have a properly configured firewall before you
connect the machine to the internet or else you are almost guaranteed to
be infected by a pest of one kind or another within 5 minutes of
connecting to the net!
