well, XP is as well server softwre, u'll get IIS enhanced in it, and it as well be fater than your machine on win2K.
I know transition from win2K is difficult, as I have used it quite a while and when XP came, i use to think i will never use XP, but used once, found it stable and lighter than any previous versions, now I must say that this is best O/S out of M/S after 98SE
it as well proved to be stable as once i newely built A7N8X-Deluxe and upgraded it with A7N8X (non-deluxe) BIOS in fault. win98 didnt booted up nr did 2K, and windows XP does, and as well ran quiet well until i came to know that the problem is BIOS.
