    Hi,

    I'm not sure if I need this update or not, I'm running XP Home. From reading
    more about it at the WinUpdate site, it seems that XP Pro is what it's
    intended for. Am I wrong here, and do need to install it? Also, what does
    this Jet Pack4.0 do exactly?

    Thanks,
    --
    Curt.

    If you go to the windows update site and it says you need an update, you
    need it.

    There is an old adage that has been mentioned many times --- if it ain't broke,
    don't fix it. I have yet to have one Microsoft software design engineer or any
    other developer who can unequivocally say that a specific patch is needed in
    order for any single one of my computers to function. There is already too
    much dumbing-down in computers and the user has surrendered too much
    by following suit by dumbly allowing an outside party load sight unseen (or
    unknown) a length of code.

    Know where Jet Pack is used? A server. You running a Windows NT, 2000
    or 2003 Server, Curt?

    No you don't. The Jet Pack is for something that most people will never
    need.

    "So, Mr Slumpy you *really* are the perpetual comedian, aren't you ?" I
    threw back my head and roared with laughter as Curt continued:

    It enables you to get from home to work in less than 10 minutes, and you get
    to feel just like James Bond.

    Not entirely true.

    Not necessarily true _at all_. I am still running W2K SP2, and have
    successfully and safely ignored many of M$'s "updates" - WMP9 among
    them.

    you would be surprised at how much software makes use of msjet for their
    data storage needs.
