Default Daylight Savings Time updates for Windows

Whenever I go to the Microsoft website to find out how to update my Windows 2000 servers, they consistently re-direct me to pages where I can download Windows 2003 server updates. Will this work with my Windows 2000 operating system? Thanks in advance.

I didn't think you had to update for daylight savings time, or I could be wrong?

Ya, the government decided they wanted to change when daylight saving time started, so now all devices that automatically change for daylight saving time have to be changed and windows is one of them so they had to come out with an update for it...

doh! borat beat me

If you've got automatic updates turned on then it did it already but if not then visit the update site and get the latest updates
