I have the sasser worm on my network (b/c my users do not update their computers when instructed to)... i have about 600 PCs in one flat subnet,,, what is the easiest way to track down the PCs that have sasser?  Could i use ethereal?  and if so what specifically do i need to look for to recognize computers with the sasser worm?

Ok... the mess is allready been created :o)

mikeleebrla, please, next time, don't cross-post your question, it causes confusion. Please get one of these closed, and ask the experts in the other question to move their comments to the one you'd like to keep.
