Hi stevek65,
the short answer is no. In fact, it really depends on what you intend to do with that machine, because Windows 2000 server is indeed a server, while XP is just a client (whose corrispondent server version is Server 2003).

Anyway, this migration is not supported by Microsoft itself:

These are some known problems, when upgrading from 2000 Professional:

What exactly you need to retreive from Windows XP and incorporate with Windows 2000 Server.

Do you need your login profile?

Any other data?

System modules for XP are bit different from Windows Server. There is no compatibility between these two products.
