i am setting up a new wsus server to roll out updates for windows xp and windows 7
i am running on a hyper v on server 2003.

what updates should i sent out first , i have created a test group just to ensure that it doesnt crash everything.

also how is the active directory linked into wsus as i have created a variety of profiles to allow these updates to be installed via group policy.
