Don't discard all copies of Windows NT 4.0 Server just yet. Windows Me will not play well with Win2k Advanced Server.
While installing a Windows 2000 Advanced Server and two work stations, it was discovered that the machines with Windows Me installed from the factory would not play well with the Win2k Advanced Server. We could not log on to the server or browse the shares. Further research revealed that Windows Me is designed for home use and has no possiblity of working on a business Win2k network. However, NT 4 Server (with current service packs) will work with Windows Me on work stations.
Our solution was to have the customer purchase the OS for the workstations that we reccommended Win2k WS.
