Thanks for replies from Lee Heagney, Lars Hecking, and Hichael Morton.

Lee and Lars had actual experience with SP2 and no problems.
This encouraged me to install it, and so far it has worked fine.

On the newsgroup comp.sys.sun.misc I got a reply from Torsten
Kirschner, who pointed out that Sun patch 110762-03 claims to
allow the use of SP2.  I found that I had already installed that
patch, so maybe that's why I had no problems.

Original question:

>Will the Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 work with a SunPCi?
>The manual says that Service Pack 1 is incompatible with
>SunPCi, but it doesn't mention Pack 2.  I want to install
>a Microsoft application which insists on Service Pack 2.
>This is one of the old 400 MHz SunPCi boards with software
>version 1.3.  I think that's the latest version that will
>work with this board.  It's hosted in an Ultra 5 with
>Solaris 7.
