I would like to learn more about window 2003 system requirement. I know MS web site has one. But I need to know more in detail. such as how much space we should leave for c drive....more realistic features.

Since I will use this as support documents to our boss to approve what we need. so we need industry-approved web site if you know any.


Thank you

I have a P2 300, 256MB ram running windows 2003 standard.  You need like 2.5GIg diskspace just for the install.  
So if you have an existing NT 4.0 box with a C: partition of 4 Gigs, you need to make sure that partition has nothing else on it but Windows and then you can upgrade it to windows 2003.  
Does that help out?
