Hi...got a few retired Compaq proliant 1600, just wondering they
support Windows 2003 server. If it does, do I have to use Smart Start

You should be able to install w2k3 if they have enough ram. I dont know if smart start still support 1600 but you should be able to install with the regular w2k3 CD. You will not get a top system though
