I am buying a device that requires that I have SP2 loaded on Windows 2000.

How do I know whether I need to load SP2?

Help>About says Windows 2000 Version 5 Build 2195

Hi. It just says Windows 2000 5.00.2195
Does that mean no service packs have been applied?

Mainly fear.
I'll give it a go as soon as I can resurrect an internet connection for the laptop.
Any Gotcha's?

Hello, just checked a Windows 2000 Machine with Service Pack 4. (My Computer / Properties)
It will definatly say "Service Pack x" underneith the version of Windows.

If it does not say Service Pack, then there is no service packs installed.

If you install Service Pack 4.  Check your printer setups, as these usually revert back to windows defaults.

Yes Thanks to you and to Mauricio.
I have (overcome my fear) and installed SP4 - after uninstalling Firefox and Thunderbird to give me enough space on C drive - and all seems to be well (and Yes SP4 does appear under Windows 2000) in the properties option.
Thanks again for your help.
