Install - Windows NT Debug Symbols

Hi,
I just installed Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0, for the first time, along with VB and Interdev. During the install a msg came up telling a short cut to install the Windows NT Debug Symbols. I am just starting with Visual C++. When I click the short cut I get messages about 1. Some of the symbol files could not be located - the cd is in when the msg appears. 2. The version does not match the one on my machine - is this the fact that in 1998 windows nt 4 was the target and not windows 2000. Are the two problems related? If 2000 is the problem with the dbg files, how does it get sorted out? I have not installed service pack 5 yet. I haven't been able to find anything at the pillar of knowledge - MSDN about it. I would appreciate any help, thanks,
d

Don't install the NT4 symbol files on W2k - even though it does no harm, it simply won't work. Get the matching symbols for your installation from the MS site: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q260910 

If you have e.g. W2k SP1, go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/servicepacks/sp1/ where you'll find a link to http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/servicepacks/sp1/debug/default.asp - there you can download the debug symbols for SP1.

The procedure is similar to other service packs...
