    I will be installing a new copy of Windows XP 64-bit in a few days. The
    package says it has SP2. I thought I would then install SP3,then use
    Windows Update. Am I correct that the updates that are put out
    periodically are the same for 64-bit as for the 32-bit versions? Or are
    there different updates for the 64-bit version?

    So I am best off just using Windows update for the 64-bit system?

    Right, use Windows Update.
    My only exception is hardware drivers updates.
    I always use the card/chipset manufacturer driver.

  5. Yeah, WU has really had some issues in the last few months with hardware
    updates. Even worse if you're on a WSUS environment.
