Business Objects Data Services Installation Questions

I recently inhereted SAP Application Server administration duties from a former employee and I could use any guidance the SCN can offer.

I would like to replicate our production Data Services environment into a 'sandbox' to test a database upgrade before upgrading our production database.

We are currently running SAP Data Services 4.1 with a Oracle 11G database for Repositories, Source & Target data.  Where can I locate the SAP DS 4.1 software download & 'Evalution' license key?  This is intended to be a short-term install specifically to test the DB upgrade.  I found SBOP BI PLATFORM 4.1 SERVER WINDOWS software download, but I don't know if this is the same as the product we currently use.

Also, if this is the correct software, there are several Service Packs available for download (SP1 - SP6).  Do I need to install all 6 Service Packs in sequence?  Or, can I install only the most recent Service Pack (SP6)?
