Our Dell PV 770N NAS "device" crashed 2 days ago and I had to reinstall the
OS. This OS displays "Windows Powered" as the OS type, although it looks
and behaves a lot like Windows 2000. My question is, since it's not branded
Windows 2000, is it safe to install critical updates and security hotfixes
from our SUS server onto this NAS appliance? Dell says "probably".
Winternals refuses to support it. I don't know what Microsoft says because
I don't have a support contract with them.

Anyone have any experience with this issue? I'm beginning to wonder if one
of Microsoft's updates may have contributed to the OS crash.
