That's not my perception.

The area of the SAM concerned, is (as I understand it) an already included
chunk, but unused and undefined.

Use of UMFD that include the terminal server extensions (or in a past life,
the Citrix stuff) merely wrote stuff into this area, that everything else
would ignore - as it's there for (then) future expansion.

On NT4 machines, do you mean? (if so, depending on what level they're at,
you may need to install the mmc).

Your W2K server will have UMFD on it, anyways.
