    Well, well, all of the sudden I'm the most popular guy on NTBugTraq. :-)

    Thankyou for all of the positive feedback. I've also received a number of
    general questions about our SP2 support. Since I wasn't (and still am
    not) acting as an official representative of Symantec - haven't done
    electornic support in ages - I didn't think to cover this in my initial
    post. So, for those looking for more information on Symantec's XP SP2
    support, for both consumer and enterprise products, please see the
    following two links. And, dag nab it, the first doesn't fit on a
    72-character line, so you'll need to fixup the wrapping.

    support. On both sites, you'll find a Support Documents link that has
