I'm a long-time IT professional, but with relatively little experience with \nWindows. I'm interested in studying for MCSE. I bought a copy of the MS \nPress self-paced training kit for 70-290. The first exercise was to install \nWindows Server 2003 SP1 with the evaluation copy that was provided. One of \nthe steps was to obtain automatic updates over the Internet. When I did \nthis, it installed SP2. When I proceeded to the configuration process, the \nscreens looked considerably different than shown in the book. I tried to \nwork my way through it anyway but was quite unsure if I was doing it right.\n\nIn frustration, I returned the training kit to the seller. But I'm \nwondering if I'm missing something simple. I there an SP2 version availablr \nof this course? Or, can I bypass installing SP2 but still get other needed \nupdates?\n\nI would really appreciate any advice on this. The self-paced kits seem like \na cost-effective way to learn the stuff, but I'm reluctant to spend too much \ntime barking up the wrong tree.
