    ok guys, just a little question here.

    in my exam cram book on 70-290 it says that SUS (server side) can be installed on (1) win2k server w/SP2 and (2) server 2003.

    then in the questions later on it says that SUS as a server can be installed on WinXP Pro w/SP1.

    so i researched it on the web and all i found was that it could be installed on win2k server w/SP2 and win server 2003. i couldn't find anything about XP.

    so is that some error in the book? because ive already noticed several.

    i already looked at the FAQ of SUS and i didnt see anything about which OS it can run on, just the hardware requirements.
    actually the link there is for WSUS, the "new-and-improved" SUS.

    but i guess i'll assume it can't run on XP.

    EDIT: ok i found it, it doesn't install on XP.
