Hi,

I am a java programmer, not networking guy. I had setup MS 2k server for MS SQL database for practice my development skills.
I had also lot of softwares, DB2, websphere software, weblogic, apache, tomcat, eclipse etc.

I have windows 2000 server on AMD machine with 256+128 ram and 80 gb hard-drive.
The system is slow when loading becasue it is server. So I am planning to remove it and install windows 2000 pro. I have wireless router for networking. I have some questions...

- If I install windows 2000 pro, then I will get better performance?
- If I install windows 2k pro, Can I install MS SQL server on it?
- My networking with central database concept will work or not?
- With likksys wirless router, is networking possible without win2k  server?

Thanks

Yes - it will perform better than Server on that platform. Your problems now may be caused by too many applications being loaded.
- If I install windows 2k pro, Can I install MS SQL server on it?
You can install MSDE which is a cut-down developer version of MS-SQLServer. It's limited to databases of 2GB or less.
- My networking with central database concept will work or not?
I'm confused by this question - what do you mean.
- With likksys wirless router, is networking possible without win2k  server?
No problem. Be aware that your wireless performance is less than wired performance but in a development environment that should not matter. You don't need Win2K server for networking on a small network but it makes things nice because of authentication and resource sharing. Nice but not necessary.

ok thanx.

In networking with central database server means, I will instal MSDE as you have mentioned on windows 2k pro and will connect other computers connect with this database server through their application. So it is possible right?
