When you are planning your ICP deployment, refer to the Release Notes that are provided with the ICP. In addition to the release notes, other documentation about changes introduced by the ICP might become available at the same time as the ICP, which might help you to better understand the ICP. Such documentation is included with the ICP and is in the Configuration Manager 2007 Web site, see (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=74318).
