I run a win2k server with the Master dc, ftp-server, fileserver and
a gameserver-roles on an almost identical system. I have 256M ram
and 2x 30G, 1x 80 and one 160G HDs, though. Works quite nice. Win2k
server I think is a heavier burden to run than xp. It all depends
on what you want to do with that box of yours.

Before I had the amd k6-2/500, I ran the same roles on a PII/233
with less ram... 8-)
