What is the particular error message that you are getting? Most of the time, you can trace a problem to the Microsoft support site with the error message you receive. Chances are it is a common error.

WEll, Build 2195 is the official release of Win2K that has been available since Feb 2000. That is the official version, not a release candidate.
Now, as to why you can't install the Service Pack: you must be logged into the machine as an Administrator, either a Domain Administrator (if the laptop is configured to be a member of a NT4/2000 domain) or a Local Administrator. If you are just logging on as a normal user, you won't have the access rights to install the SP.

Also, you need a couple hundred MB of empty drive space to install the SP.

If answer 2 does not do it, try this. Install SP1 then SP2. If this does not work it is possible that you have a pirated copy of W2K. I read an article once that said this could happen. If you suppect this and are sure you should a legal copy then call MS and ask for a replacement.
