I've been doing hand to hand combat with a test server for a little over a
month now and it was winning. Somewhere during the update process nici
would get clobbered and I would loose my nss volume and a few other
things. I could never figure out where nici was broken.

I found sp2 over the weekend. Created the CDs (10) and did another fresh
install. The updates clobbered nici again but this time it was an easy
fix.

<sauntering> That's right. We bad.
