Today Microsoft announced the release of Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) to Windows Update and Microsoft Download Center. We also resumed automatic distribution of Windows Vista SP1. We will begin automatically distributing Windows XP SP3 in early summer.
As mentioned last week, we uncovered a compatibility issue between Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) and both Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). To help protect customers, we put filtering in place to prevent Windows Update from offering both service packs to systems running Microsoft Dynamics RMS. We are still testing a fix and are working to make it publicly available via Microsoft Download Center this month.
Until then, we advise Microsoft Dynamics RMS customers to not install either service pack. Microsoft Dynamics RMS customers running Windows XP SP3 or Windows Vista SP1 should contact Microsoft Customer Support Services for additional information.
As mentioned in my RTM post, Microsoft will monitor this forum for the next few weeks in case you have additional feedback about the release of Windows XP SP3.
The Windows XP Support Forum has pointers to standard information about Windows XP Service Pack 3. Also, the Windows XP SP3 TechNet portal is now updated as well.

I got Promise Technology SmartStor NS4300N Network Attached Storage (NAS) for many months ago but didn't really use it until I found out that there is a permission problem with it. Since I got it, I just moved all of my files and folders inside one folder on NAS. (Let's say "Temp") A few days later, I created some other blank folders at the same level as “Temp” folder and set some permission for different people. My plan is to organized all files and folder under “Temp” sometime soon.
Last month, I started to organize my files and folder. Before that, I found that there was a new firmware came out. So, I just upgraded firmware from 01.02.0000.05 to 1.03.0000.06. Started to move files from “Temp” folder to other folders but I ran into permission problem on many files and folders. This is strange but I found that the problem is about Owner of those files and folders were different. I had to change owner under FTP program. (CHOWN) Since there were a lot of files and folders I had to go through, I finally gave up.
I've contacted Promise Support and they answered me that there was no known problem about permission with this new firmware. I also asked him if it’s possible to get into SSH but he said there was no way to do that. (But I found a way later on this website and this one but I never tried that though.) They asked if I can try to refresh permission under web interface and see if it is solved or not. I replied back to ask if he can tell me step by step how to do that. Never get answer back from them ever since.
I, then, found this link -> http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1023&message=25115423 - Here is what creaturejbl said :
Their answer - Yes, this is a well know bug on permission control. They suggest me just return the product to store.
I just recently got a problem with Hostgator. At first, I understood them and decided to move to somewhere else. But then, I got a hard time canceling my account with them. (Already filled a second CANCELLATION form yesterday to cancel my account.) Until now, I'm still waiting for them to confirm my cancellation. That already took me three days and don't know when should this situation end.
Let me tell you what I faced with Hostgator from the beginning :
