Here  is my question.  I currently have a windows nt  4 server set as the primary domain controller.  I have an application that is in a shared folder on the NT server.  My plan is to install windows server 2003 on a new server, copy the shared folder over to the new server, unshare the old folder, reshare the new folder as the same name.  hopefully the existing mapping will still see the share as APPS.  the new server would just be a server on my domain, nothing else.  i should not need additional cal's for this new server, right?  anything else i need to be aware of since i am not familar with server 2003?  i have done something similar on server 2000.

thanks in advance
