    Jack,

    You tried to install SP1. SP1 what? Windows 2000 SP1? Office 2000 SP1?
    The restrictions work. What restrictions? Are you talking about the
    restricted Groups Group Policy?

    How are you trying to deploy SP1? I am 'assuming' that you mean Windows
    2000 SP1. You would do this via creating a shared network folder and
    'extracting' SP1 to that folder and then by making sure that 'Domain
    Computers' has at least read/read and execute on both the 'share' and 'NTFS'
    permissions. You also need to make sure that the GPO is linked to the OU in
    which the computer account objects directly reside.

    You also need to make sure that DNS is configured correctly. If DNS is not
    correct then you are going to have a problem with a lot of things, GPOs
    being just one of them.

    Where are you seeing the 'Fatal error during installation' message?
