    Got em - thanx!

    BTW I found 811630 interesting - This update enables applications to access HTML Help in a new, restricted mode. Future updates of Internet Explorer require this new capability. Download now to ensure that Internet Explorer can properly display HTML Help in HTML pages.

    It refers you to Q811630 - whose link comes up currently unavailable???

    In all fairness its not a new SP just one for legal reasons and it didnt contain any new updates.

    These are normal pre-SP2 patches and will be included in that service pack.
