The pc is being used for 3d animation and compositing....set up on a 50+ workstation lan with no central server...all computers are setup as servers and I know there are a bunch of unneeded services I should be able to disable.....oh yeah, I am running a IIS server (just for local testing) as well?  Any ideas?

Zero, that's a big question with very little supportive information. The easiest way to ascertain what you don't need is to first ascertain what you must have. After doing that, open computer management and start moving the services to manual start and then check the performance.

I know what you mean dew associates...I might as well reformat when i get my dual Ghz PIII and then run windows pro instead of advanced server...I dont need all those extra network services and i think they are integrated into the shell :(

Thanks for the comments!

Not really Zero, there's usually nothing (except maybe 3rd party apps) that can't be terminated in the server edition.
