KB 940848 will most likely become a required preinstallation checkpoint for SCCM 2007 due to the following issue with the current shipping versions of MMC with Windows Server 2003:

Some items on a shortcut menu are missing when you right-click an item in an MMC snap-in.
For example, when you right-click the Task Sequences node, the following menu items are missing:

New
Import
Create Task Sequence Media
Give feedback

These menu items appear only if you right-click this node again.

It also fixes an issue with unexpected termination of MMC.EXE with a generic Visual C++ error as the only indicator of a problem.

Either way, if you are going to deploy SCCM 2007, request KB 940848 beforehand. It will save you some headaches.
