Advice restoring .bak file on SQL server - stating wrong version

I am trying to restore a .bak file on Sequel server 2000.
I am getting an error stating tha it can't restore beacuse the version used to create the file (134218488) is different from my version (134219767).

Any advice?

what is the version of the server where the backup was made.
type select @@version to find out.

looks like the backup file you are restoring from is a higher version that was you are restoring to. Or it has a  recent serice patch installed.

backups cant be restored on lower version. it has to be equal or higer versions.
Looks like you're restoring from SP4 to SP3.  Can you upgrade your version to SP3?

I meant to ask if you can upgrade to SP4
