You can obtain the SPCheck Tool from Microsoft.com

Description
You can use the SPCheck tool to determine the service pack level of installed components on computers that are running either Windows NT Server 4.0, Windows 2000 Server, WIndows XP, or Windows Server 2003. The SPCheck tool generates a report that lists the origin of each file for each installed component.

SPCheck reports on the current service pack level of the following components.

Windows NT 4.0-Based Computers
DHCP Server
DNS
Remote Access Service (RAS)
Routing and Remote Access service
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
WINS
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
NWLink (IPX/SPX)
Exchange Server 5.5

Windows 2000-Based Computers
DHCP Server
DNS
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
WINS
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
NWLink (IPX/SPX)
Exchange Server 5.5
Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server
SPCheck examines each component one file at a time. Because of this, SPCheck must run under a security context that is equivalent to the local administrator account. If SPCheck is not run in this security context, files may be reported as missing, even though they are installed on the computer. SPCheck searches for files by using the "PATH" environmental variable. If files are reported as missing (although they can be found on the target computer), ensure that the folder or folders which the component is installed in are included in the PATH environmental variable.
