Are you relying on your ISP's DNS? If so, you will need to register the hostname of your webserver with your ISP's DNS - depending on the vendor there will be different procedures for doing so, you should contact your ISP's technical support line to determine how to go about doing this.

As for setting up the server with both 2K and 2K3, are you asking how to set up a dual-boot partition on the server? If so, refer to this KB article for instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=217210 (the article references XP and 2000 but the steps are nearly identical.)  If that's not the question you're asking, please be more specific as to what you are trying to accomplish.

jonnydollar,

your ISP will take care of all your external DNS records for you....the first time is a little freaky but you will be right, just call them, tell them what you want and they will do it all for you if they are worth anything....

Regards,

James

If you are using your ISP's DNS, then configure your w2k server with the static IP that they have assigned you, and contact your ISP to find out how to register the hostname in their DNS.
