I just did the patch to NW6SP5 from SP3. Only one server had a
problem...it wouldn't load the nic drivers. I went to another server
and got the drivers from the sp backup (I highly recommend doing the
backup of the files during a service pack install, for those of you who
are new to all this) and they loaded fine.

My question is...will using the old nic drivers cause problems? The
server seems happy now, but I'm concerned it might go flaky later.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
