Whether or not to install SQL 2000 on the database server to communicate with 2003 web server

Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I have two new Windows 2003 servers which are going to replace two win2k servers, one is used as a database server and the other is web. On the existing servers, on the web I have SQL 2000 installed. My problem is when switching everything to 2003. I understand that I can not install SQL on the web server, but from past problems with having the servers to communicate with one another was the primary reason that I installed SQL on the web.

So, my question in a nutshell is how can I work around this problem.

Oh in case it matters, my servers are member servers on an Enterprise network.
