microsoft ISA server 2004 installation and firewall services

Hi experts,

I installed the micorsoft ISA 2004 on the windows 2003 server. Now when I click on windows firewall or try to start the micrsoft server ISA control in the services , I get the error  message. "windows could not start the Microsoft ISA server control on local computer.for more information, review the system event log. If this is a non-microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code-1073727715".

When I went through the installtion instructions, it said "ISA Server 2004 should be installed on computers running Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003, or Windows® 2000 Server, Service Pack 4 (SP4)". But later I got to know that I have Service PAck 1(SP1).

Does the installation of the SP4 effect all other system configuration?
Can anyone send me the link for installing SP4?

thanks
Sundeep.

Remove ISA, get your OS up to the correct levels then reinstall ISA and its service packs. Whilsy this could be walked through it is quite possible that unknown conditions could remain. Bearing in mind the role ISA plays, I would get it to a clean state properly rather than just fudging. If you install SP4 over the top it is quite possible that you would need to reinstall ISA again anyway as files 'could' be replaced by the SP installation that ISA requires.
