I need to upgrade my DC and DC2 to Service Pack 2. Is this a Simple Upgrade?

I need to upgrade my Domain Controller and the Second Domain Controller with Service Pack 2. They currently are both running Server 2003R2 SP1. Can anyone give me information that talks me through this?  Is this a Touchy Operation? Is there a Chance I ruin everything?  What measures should I take?

I'm just VERY Scared to upgrade them.  About a year ago I JUST took the current position because the last IT Guy up and left and I had no knowledge of majority of what was in place.  I found the Servers had Service Pack 1 on them so I upgraded two of them through Windows Update. It crashed two of the servers so I kind of swore off updating those things.  I now think it was more of a Fluke than anything else and I know it is an Upgrade I need to make.

If you have the tools available you could also image your machine so if the upgrade went bad you can reload the prior image and business will conduct as usual
Can you image Domain Controllers?
Of course.  Acronis True Image Server IMO is the best
Thanks for the advice guys
