Hello Pekka,

Thanks for the feedback ... I will guard your response for later. But for 
now we are trying to set up OpenCMS on Win2k ... Our company would like to 
eventually move our operation entirely to Linux, but for now we have an 
immediate client who has a religious attachment to a certain legacy 
operating system ... Any advice for Win2k "Advanced" Server ?

Best wishes,

Chris Gianniotis
