.Net Framework functionality on NT4.0 Server


I want to install the ".Net" framework on an NT4.0 (SP 6)
server running IIS, with a view to writing an ASP.NET application.
I'm told there are limitations when running on NT4, as opposed to Windows 2000 server.  
Does anybody have the details of what will be unavailable (or degraged) by using NT4 ?
Please be specific with your answer!
Thanks

You cannot run ASP.NET on a Windows NT 4 machine. You can use Visual Studio .NET on a Windows NT 4 client to remotely debug an ASP.NET application running on a remote server. The server must be running Windows 2000 Workstation and IIS, Windows 2000 Server with or without Terminal Server, or Windows XP Server, Advanced Server, or Professional Edition.

If your debugging client is running Windows NT 4 Server and are logged into the client through a Terminal Server session, you cannot start the application from Visual Studio .NET (by choosing a Start or Step command from the Debug menu) and begin debugging automatically. You must start the application without debugging and use the Processes dialog box to manually attach to the process. If you are logged into the console of the debugging client, you can use either method to start debugging. For more information, see Attaching to a Running Program or Multiple Programs.
