u can finalize the cd... i think finalizing the CD is jus telling it where thhe CD Ends? ur gonna erase it anyways since its a CD-RW

about finalizeing, if i do that to a cd-r, i cant write anything else to it.

i thought that it would make myy CRRW not RW anymore :)

i cant chose track at once, and the finalize thing is grayed out.

hey the latest dynamic update 1.3 is already included in the SP1 package

unless MS is doing some other updates not included in releases

I don't think the du will do anything.

When I checked Download Updates...............

I watched the Dynamic Updates status bar....

It says Connecting to microsoft....., Download timing was around 25 minutes using a 512 kbps connection.

A directory was created named dudrvs in the and this was in that root of the BOOT folder (Formerly known as $WIN_NT$.~BT)

And in the root of the dudrvs folder there are two other folders named 734789 and 3229025.

The 734789 folder is around 82.4 MB and the files:

Directory of C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\dudrvs\734789

that's what I was wondering since my connection is bad

i never runned du.

out of those 82.4mb most probably are there bc of the languages.

can we apply these two updates manually? or do we have to go to updateing process?? I won't be able to install xp if I run du with my connection:))

Dynamic updates is a new feature of XP. The idea is it will install only CRITICAL updates related to the install of XP. This way before you upgrade, you'll have critical fixes integrated. A good example of this is a data loss situation. Using dynamic updates (du for short), microsoft can integrate a fix for a data loss bug, so people don't lose data on the upgrade.

The 3 du's where for presp1, i dont think there's been a du available for post-sp1. using the 3 du's as a guide, you can slipstream the du's. The 3 du's on the microsoft site are for administrators to use on a file share. Du's are complicated though, i wouldn't recommend using it.
