Hi I am going to use the Microsoft Action Pack Software to set myself up a server in the office.

It will mainly be used to run a set of daily reports and ping various external servers to make sure they are alive.

I will mostly use Remote Desktop Connection to access it.

The question is I have a choice of either installing:

1) Windows Server 2003

or

2) Windows Server 2008 RC1

I do prefer installing the latest software, but am concerned if I install RC1 I may not be able to upgrade it at a later date.

Also I have 4GB of Ram so would like to run 64 bit if poss.

What would you advise.

Thanks,

Luv2.

better way is to install windows 2003, release candidate is not production system right now,
4gb ram doesn`t mean you will have option to install 64bit system

if you want to install 64bit you have to have 64bit hardware (AMD opteron, etc...)
