Ok, first question is why/how are you trying to upgrade to SP2?? The latest
service pack is SP4 and that is the only one you can download from MS.
As for being the administrator on the box, how do you know? Right click My
Computer and click Manage. Then expand Local Users & Groups. Is your user
in the administrators group? Check NTFS and Share permissions on all drives
and shares and make sure administrators group has full control permissions.
