Hi,

I am trying to install Windows server 2003 32-bit OS into the above PC, but there is no windows 2003 32-bit graphics driver for Nvidia Quadro NVS 285 graphics card. I tried to install XP/2000 driver but that screw up the system. Is there any work around for this?

Thanks

Since 2003 Server will turn off most of the cards facilities anyway, just use a cheap PCI card instead. You have one suitable slot.

Plenty of twin head cards out there, but S2003 is not likely to think this is a good idea. The OS is designed from the ground up to be a server. This means no frills, just exceptional file handling / sharing capabilities.
