    It is worth noting that this Service Pack is also for Windows XP x64.

    Good note - that's kinda weird to see a server SP bundled with a client SP though

    Does this mean that when I next install my server will I have to install Service Pack 1, then 2, or can I just go straight to 2?

    You can install SP2. All Microsoft Service Packs are cumulative.

    You can also slipstream SP2 to your SP1 or no SP media.

    If you have a CD with no SP applied, slipstream SP2 to the CD directly and you will be patched for both Service Packs

    I have not had the time to install it yet. I haven't even read the change log.

    I installed SP2 this morning. The install went smoothly and all is well with my Exchange Server.

    Glad to hear there were no problems, I'll have to wait a few weeks until I can roll this out to a few servers.

    Shortly thereafter I plan to slipstream it to my media, yummy.
