Installing Office 2003 SP3


E

Eric

Hello,

I am planning on rolling out Office SP3 on several machines and I was
wondering
if I had first to apply all the updates for SP2 (if any) through Windows
Update
before upgrading or if I could just install SP3.
Is there such a thing as a network installation package, like for XP SP3, so
I don't have to download it for every machine I upgrade.

Thank you.

Eric
