Can a Windows Server2003  act as a host for older OS2 client?  I have three OS2 workstations that can not be upgraded, and run IPX/SPX to contect to Novell file server. There is no TCP/IP capabilities on the OS2 systems. Can Window 2003 act as a IPX/SPX host for the OS2 operating systems in this case?

Yes, it can.  To add IPX/SPX:
Right-click My Network Places
Select Properties
Right-click Local Area Connection
Select Properties
Click Install
Select Protocol
Click Install
Select NWLink IPX/SPX...
Click OK
Click Close

There are some other steps involved, but this will get the protocol installed.
