Win 2000 Server

Hello everyone, I am not sure if this is the proper newsgroup, but I
work for a small architecture firm that is looking to upgrade our server.
At the moment we have NT Small business server 4.0. I don't know everything
about this OS, but as we added some XP computers, they don't work well with
the server. Is this something that can only be remedied by an upgrade to
Windows Server 2000 or 2003? Also, would it be worthwhile to use 2000 or go
to 2003. This is as basic as a server gets (and meets all the
requirements), and is only used as a file server and possibly a mail server
in the future, but the problems with XP and possibly getting newer laptops
with XP already installed, is making us consider an upgrade. Any help would
be appreciated greatly. Thank you.

Hello
One question...what are the problems you are having with your XP
clients?
As per what OS to use, Win2000 or Win2003...If are are not planning a
major
implementation of servers running 2003, then stick with Win2000
server.
Since you mentioned that this server is used only for file serving,
then I would stay with 2000.
Are you running a WorkGroup or Domain?
How many PC's already exist in your network.
Keep in mind that in a Workgroup you can have up to 10 pc's utilizing
resources on that server.
