I have an old Poweredge 2550, PIII, 2GB ram that I would like to reuse for only one network client.  Can I run Windows XP Professional on a server?
Thanks

2550 is meant for server based OS. But however, check in dell site for scsi controller drivers for windows XP. smart cd will not have support for windows xp os.
