Hi,

I am just about to set up a home server that i will install windows server 2003 on.

I am planning on using a fairly old pc, that is no longer used but yet still does perform very well and meets all the system requirements of windows server 2003

My question is whether or not i can install server 2003 over the top of windowx xp and then not have to reinstall the drivers on the computer.

If not - could you give me a brief description of how i would have to install indows server 2003, and where i could get drivers and the like.

Thanks in advance

Joseph

you can't

same way as you install windows XP
after it's up and running, add the needed drivers and services
