We just put up a couple of 2003 servers at various clients. I also have
5.1 boxes running. If some one were willing to help me craft a good set
of tests I myght beable to swing a side by side comparison with matching

Are there any takers?

Actually, more appropriate would be Windows 2000 Advanced Server, right?

Windows XP is mainly for desktops, not servers..
