Mesh computers have had some problems, please post rather than email, that way all of the forum can see the problem and can offer help.

I ordered the SP2 Disk from Microsoft and it arrived Sat 11/9/04 Before installing it said it take 2 Hours depending on my configuration in fact it too 40 minutes and everything works fine.

<< then extracts files and nothing >>

It does take a very long time while inspecting your present setup and, during this period, it may seem as if nothing is happening.

To install SP2 from CD:
1) Start the installation.
2) Go and make coffee and don't come back for half an hour :-)
