I have an evaluatin version of Win2000 server and plan to purchase the License next week.  If I install the evaluation copy now can it be converted to a licensed copy later without problems.

Thanks,

Mike

My understanding is that the answer to this is no.  You cannot convert an evaluation version to a licensed version.
