Windows 2000 Small Business Server.....Adding second server to this environment question

I am currently using Windows 2000 Small Business Server with Exchange.  We are planning on adding a second server to be used as a file and print server.  Does SBS have any problems with this configuration.  I know you can not add a second domain but can you add a second server.  Also, the box we want to add to the environment is currently running Windows XP Professional.  Can I just join it to the domain and share out the drive to the active directory users or will I have to setup individual accounts on the XP box.  OR.......do I just need to upgrade it to Windows 2000 Server????

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Kenny

No, you can do it as stated.

You 'can' do it the first way, but you'd limit yourself since XP is a 'client' not a server...the server OS will serve you better - not to mention, it won't be as limited as XP in terms of incoming network connections...

Thanks....I needed that reassurance.  I was pretty sure that was the case but I just had not tried it yet.

Thanks
