  • You naturally want to take a back-up of your SharePoint content, hive/12 and any customisations.

    Your version number 12.0.0.6421 corresponds to SP2, and you can check the latest available upgrades here

    Sp3 will include all previous kbs, which means you'll have updates from October 2011 to install.

    Patch installation is a 2 stage process.  Download and run the exes, then run the SharePoint configuration Wizard.
