    Yes, no problem for xp, vista, 2008, win7 - even win2k will be fine except in extreme cases that you aren't likely to use.  Anything that 2003 can issue 2008 will recognize.  The other way around, we would need more info as 2008 supports additional algorithms for signing and encryption than 2003 did.

    I verified certificate installation on W2K8 issued by W2K3 server.

    Thank you so much
