IE6 with SP1 is horrible. SP1 includes Microsoft's Java Machine, which has several exploits. IE6 with SP1 has no pop-up blocker (assuming no add-ons have been downloaded), and no download-installation warning.
If you have to get IE6, get SP2. SP2 removes the MS Java Machine, and will add a pop-up blocker and a download-installation warning to IE6. Again, if you can't get IE6 with SP2, then avoid this completely. SP2 is far more secure than SP1.
