In my lab I have a test computer with the above components.  Can I run Windows 2003 server on this PC?

I need to setup a test Server to try to setup and test a VPN secenario for a client.

    You also need a mouse, keyboard, power supply, graphics card and CD-ROM drive.

    Thank you, but I was just looking to see if this  particular setup might of had any incompatibilities with Windows 2003 server.

    I checked out your link and I guess I'm good to go.

    Lol, thanks.

    Seriously... can do without the mouse, but no keyboard?

    If you run into testing issues for clients more often, consider VMware Workstation. Greatest product of all.
