Can anyone tell me if there is an argument I can pass to
the SQL Service Pack that will specify a directory to
unpack in?

For example, running sql2ksp3.exe will bring up a dialog
with C:\sql2ksp3 as the default, even if D: is the
boot/system disk.

Running the service packs with the "-s" argument unpacks
them silently into the default (C:\sql2ksp3) directory.

It would be great if I could unpack the archive into the
directory I specify without having to enter it in the GUI

Thanks for any tips,
