NT server and SQL server License questions

In our office, we have one NT server (ver4.0, SP3, 20 License Pak) set up as web server (running IIS 4.0) and one Novell File server.  We are tring to build another NT box to replace the Novell File server.  

Question 1) Do we need to buy another copy of NT server software with 25 user lincese for the same office?

Now, assuming we have 2 NT boxes now: one acts as a workgroup control and file server; the other acts as a Web server.  We want to install SQL server on both machines (for security issues).  

Question 2:  How many copy of SQL server do we need?
(1 copy with 25 user license for file server, 1 copy with internet connector license for the web server?  Do we need at least one single user lincese for the web server - someone has to maintance the SQL server.)

I would like to know if there is any FAQ for this type of questions avaible on the web.

Many thanks.

Tasman :)

You need a copy of NT server for each server.  Your client licenses depend on whether you are opting for the per seat or per server license option.  Per seat allows a particular client computer to connect to as many NT servers as you want.  Per server allows a specific number of clients to connect to that server.  You may not mix both types of licenses in the same domain.  For most people with multiple servers, the per seat option is the most cost effective, but you need to consider your situation.  You will also need a SQL server license for each server you support.  Your client usage licenses will depend on how you configure your usage of the SQL system.  Each case is different.
