First let me give you some history... I am trying to help a small local school reinstall thier NT server. Someone put a new  hard drive in it and that is were I got it. The person who original setup thier net is not around. They have about 18 workstations that will connect to the server. The workstations appear to be running Win95.

I do not know how the server was setup. How do you tell if it was in Per Server or Per Seat?

If you can tell by looking at any files on the workstations what are they? If not then which way should I go Server or Seat and why?

No way of telling if it was per seat or per server. The easiest way is to go "per seat" and get as many licenses as you have workstations. Per server is more helpful if you have, say, 200 PC's connected to a server, but KNOW that only 100 of them will be manned at any given time, in this case, you only need 100 per server licences but it would take 200 per seat licenses.
