Migrating applications from Windows NT/SQL Server 7.0 to Windows 2003/SQL Server 2000

Hi,

I've got a bunch of VB6 applications which currently run on a Windows
NT/SQL Server 7.0 server config with client machines on Windows 2000.
I'm planning to replace the servers with Windows 2003/SQL Server 2000
configs, keeping client machines on Windows 2000 for now.

So generally speaking, are there many programming or configuration
changes I'll need to make to the applications so that they'll run on
the new configuration? What issues can I expect etc?

I'm just after general issues any of you may have experienced by
migrating from NT to 2003, and also from SQL Server 7 to 2000, which is
why I haven't given much detail on the apps as it's just the beginning
of the project. So if you've done this please feel free to bare your
soul!

Thanks for sharing.

Regards,

Mong
