installing server sql 2k sp4

Does anyone know how we can obtain sql server 2000 service pack4?

We had a copy installed on our db ( I don't know who installed it) but it has got bugs.

According microsoft knowledge base, most of those bugs have been fixed but still it says "service pack4 is not available yet"

Thanks for any help on this.

You could also just wait for SQL Server 2005 in the latter part of this year and then you should have 4 more service packs after that :)

Which will be more stable....SQL 2005 RTM, or SQL 2000 sp4?  (rhetorical question)

Kevin3NF, we know it is still in beta but from what I have read, the current beta version contains some fixes for previous beta version.

We just can't find it anywhere.

This version is already buggy.

We just fix it as it is holding up work.

If it is not available from MSFT, then I'm not sure what else you want.  MSDN subscribers typically get beta stuff (I think)...perhaps thats a place to look.

It was not included in April's.  The last service pack we got with the MSDN subscription was Service Pack 3a (the CD is dated Juse 2004).

You can go to this site:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions/index/default.aspx

And search on:
"sql server 2000 service pack"

You will see the latest service pack for SQL Server 2000 shipped with MSDN is Service Pack 3a
