MS patches pushed down through Zen
I need a solution for pushing down the constant stream of Microsoft
updates and critical patches. I am considering a SUS box but already have
Zen 4 deployed and wondered if anybody is using it to push these updates
down and if so how easy have you found it to manage? I am leaning towards
the SUS box because it will automatically locate the updates while it
seems to me I would have to be the one constantly monitoring and
downloading them if I was using Zen, is that a correct assumption?
Thanks in advance

I'm a little confused. I installed the Ilfak patch on a Win2k system.
I used the checker which said I was protected.
The message came out that the MS patch was available, so I used the
Win2k update feature to get all the updates for my system.
I then used the Control Panel to remove the Ilfak patch.
I used the checker again which said my system was still protected.
Steve said the Ilfak patch was the same as the MS patch. So...
a. Wouldn't using the update feature potentially cause a problem with
the Ilfak patch?
b. Wouldn't using the Control Panel to remo...PATCH

Like most you I quickly found out that ZPM was just a lite version of

Interesting.. How did you come to the conclusion that ZPM is a lite version?

I'm wondering if anyone on this list can help with answering the
question(s) raised in the following thread at perlmonks:
The basic issue is the difference between 5.8 and 5.10 with regard to
perl -Mencoding=utf8 -le 'printf "%x\n", ord(chr(193))'
On 5.8.8 (encoding.pm v2.02, utf8.pm v1.06), that produces "c1" (hex for

do anybody know if there is somewhere a test report between SMS Server
and the ZEN Works Patch Management Server. We are using ZEN Works and I
have licenses but the M$ guys still going on my nerves to use the SMS
server and NOT ZenWorks for deploying patches. For them it seems to be a
question of honor, for me it is only interesting what makes more sense
and what will be the best solution the SMS or the ZEN Patch Management
server. Because I have to administrate the box. We only need this at
first for the MS security patches.

The kernel should be updated from 2.4.18 to 2.4.22 but it's staying at

I have trying to follow the SR6 development from day one and knew you

you just needed to have them use Himem.sys from MS DOS and things were done.
Is there not much hope for just getting FreeDOS and if Himem.sys and/or

From what I have seen Himemsys is fairly good with memory.
