Subject: MS updates question

In some cases you have to install other patches first (this should be 
obvious to most of you). As an example if you don't upgrade to media 
player 9 then you don't get the security patch for the command execution 
vuln. As an other example you may have 3 patches to install right now 
and one of them is a Service pack... after the SP install you may find 
that you now have 20 things to patch.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong...
