Quick question

Hello all. I received a copy of Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition from the school that I attend. Besides being the server software if I were to do an FDisk and wipe my drive is this also the operating system? Thanks.

If you use fdisk to change your system partition (the one your operating system is on), you will destroy any existing operating system. When you run the fdisk command to create, delete, or change a partition, all of the data on that partition is permanently deleted. Note that you can view current partition information without deleting your data.

Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition IS an operating system just as XP is an operating system. It is a server OS...but it is still an OS.

Yeah, that's what I need to do anyway. I was asking if the Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition is also the operating system?
