What’s New in Windows XP Service Pack 3
New Functionality
The following is a list of functionality that is included with the service pack, which is not addressed by the included hotfixes and security updates.

Area Functionality Description
Networking "Black Hole Router" Detection Windows XP Service Pack 3 includes improvements to black hole router detection (i.e., detecting routers that are silently discarding packets), and turns it on by default.
Networking Network Access Protection NAP is a policy enforcement platform built into Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 (now in beta testing), and Windows XP Service Pack 3 (which includes the NAP Client for Windows XP, now in beta testing) that allows you to better protect network assets by enforcing compliance with system health requirements. With NAP, you can create customized health policies to validate computer health before allowing access or communication, automatically update compliant computers to ensure ongoing compliance, and optionally confine noncompliant computers to a restricted network until they become compliant. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/networ ... apfaq.mspx
Security Credentials Security Service Provider This is a new Security Service Provider being added in Windows XP Service Pack 3 that is available via the Security Service Provider Interface, for forward compatibility with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. CredSSP enables an application to delegate the user’s credentials from the Client to the target Server. The Windows XP Service Pack 3 functionality provides the client-side SSP implementation. It is used by Remote Desktop Protocol 6.0 and is available for use by third party applications as well.
Security Descriptive Security Options UI The Security Options control panel in Windows XP Service Pack 3 now has more descriptive text to explain the settings and prevent incorrect configuration of settings.
Security Enhanced security for Administrator and Service policy entries In System Center Essentials for Windows XP Service Pack 3, Administrators and Service entries will be present by default on any new instance of policy. Additionally, the UI for the "Impersonate Client After Authentication" user right will not be able to remove these settings.
Security Microsoft Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module Windows XP Service Pack 3 includes the implementation of the SHA2 family of hashing algorithms (SHA 256, 384 and 512) and support for the same in X.509 certificate validation.
Previously, Windows XP Service Pack2 crypto modules rsaenh.dll, dssenh.dll and fips.sys had been certified according to FIPS 140-1 specifications. FIPS 140-1 standard has been now replaced by FIPS 140-2. These modules have now been validated and certified according to this new standard.
Setup Windows Product Activation As in Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, and Windows Vista, the user may now complete setup without having to provide their product key. They will be prompted for the product key as part of Genuine Advantage during subsequent use.

would you have to uninstall any other service pack 3 betas from your system or would it just write itself over the old files?

Are we allowed to download from the upload part of the server? Because the file hasn't been moved over yet...
