I want to remove the Client Operating System Service Packs from the Client Applications.

Is there any problem with this?

Is there a set procedure to do it?

Here's why we want to do it:  all of our clients have Win XP Pro w/ SP2 from the start - so we do not need the Win2K Service Pack, and Win XP Pro SP2 is already included in the standard image.

Thanks,
-Brian

There's no problem at all for \Clientapps\w2ksp4 and \Clientapps\wxpsp1, just delete the folders.  You should, however, leave the WXPSP2 in place as SBS looks to make sure it's there as a security measure to ensure that clients without this SP aren't attached to the network.
