I’ve often referenced this continuously updated list of recommended SCCM hotfixes for both site servers and clients. I thought that I would share this – http://ccmexec.com/configuration-manager-2007-sp2-hotfix-list/.
As of February 2012, I recommend the following client hotfixes be installed, I’ve also included the component version numbers as it is often hard to track these down:
|KB||ConfigMgr Client Version||Client components updated|
|KB977176||4.00.6487.2108||Task sequence – 4.00.6487.2108|
|KB978754||4.00.6487.2115||OSD – 4.00.6487.2115|

If you need assistance on how to install SCCM hotfixes, see this great post – http://ccmexec.com/2010/12/installing-the-sccm-hotfixes-on-the-clients/.
I would recommend installing the hotfixes in your OS deployment task sequence if possible, so update your installation properties to include something like PATCH=”C:_SMSTaskSequenceOSDP000001Ai386hotfixKB978754sccm2007ac-sp2-kb978754-x86.msp;C:_SMSTaskSequenceOSDP000001Ai386hotfixKB979199sccm2007ac-sp2-kb979199-x86.msp;”. If you want to add the client patches to client push, add something like PATCH=”\SERVERsms_P00CLIENTI386HOTFIXKB978754sccm2007ac-sp2-kb978754-x86.msp;\SERVERsms_P00CLIENTI386HOTFIXKB979199sccm2007ac-sp2-kb979199-x86.msp;”.
If you are using client push, ensure that you set correct NTFS permissions to the CLIENT folder mentioned above, to allow client to read and execute the hotfixes.
It’s worth being aware that the installation properties have a maximum of about 1000 characters.
