If you are on Windows Vista or newer, I believe you can go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall (starting with SQL 2008). Prior versions of SQL Server required you to uninstall and reinstall. If you are on an older version of the OS (older than Vista) you will need to uninstall/reinstall.

Thanks, I saw the link provided above too. That scares me, it seems we have to uninstall SQL server totally, it will be a long process , esp. for a database server with many sharepoint databases.

Glad to see sandtoad2's answer that after SQL server 2008, we no longer need to uninstall the whole SQL server program, but just uninstall the service pack, this makes me feel much better.
I just want to get prepared if a failure happens, I can rewind, roll back to previous SP.
Basically we want to do SP3 for a SQL 2008 SP1 sharepoint database cluster.

Thanks
