Question:  I currently own a web site running on a Sun
Netra i Internet Server w/ Solaris & Informix.  I want to move the site to a Windows NTServer & SQL.  I am not familiar with the technical feasibility, cost, and
time involved in such a transfer.  Does anyone have any information?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

The project is very possible , but why would you want to !
The move of the web pages should be easy (just FTP them across and move them into the IIS web root) as long as you havn't used any unix specific stuff (calls to sendmail , ssi execs etc).
SSIs in general are best avoided anyway.
The port from Informix to SQL Server will be the fun part. The recommended link from IIS to is via an ODBC connector. These are easy enough to set up but it will not be the same as your current   (CGI/PERL?) linkage. This is where your time will be taken up.
Hardware ? , depends on the loading on your server, but a dual processor option is well worth considering.
