Steve,

Here is a link for you to compare between the servers http://microsoft.com/windows2000/server/howtobuy/choosing/

Generally, there are 2 reasons to choose Advance server over server :
1) You need to scale up to more that 4 processors on the machine
2) You need clustering/NLB services offered by Advance server.

Hope this helps

I know some people will disagree with me, but I almost always tell people that there is no real reason for purchasing Advanced Server. Unless of course you are very seriously considering Clustering or having more than 4 processors.

Major diffrence of Windows 2000 server and Advanced server have following diffrences
                     Win 2k Svr          Win2k Adv. Svr
Processor support          4                    8
Memory Support             4 GB                 8 GB
Network Scability/Clusterin NO          Yes  2node only

Win 2k server you can use for normal file/print /web server application.

Win 2k Adv Svr you use for high processor utilize applications  which require network load balancing and clustering support. Above diffrences are major diffrence between the prodyct still one more Win 2k Datacenter servers higher than Win 2k Adv svr which is used for the DATAwarehousing and NOC enviornment which are mission critical and high availability required.

Hope this helps to select your suitable product.
Best of luck
