KB838417 has multiple hotfixes available for the English version of Windows 2000 operating systems. One is of release "latest" with a modified date older than the other package, "sp5".

I am trying to determine which hotfix package to select.

What should be known about the hotfix packages before selecting one of the hotfix packages?
