Thanks a lot! JFYI: Color depth is important not for the DB server but
for our application since it partially deals with images. users working
on the terminal server need 16M colors in order to get them right.

Our move from w2k to 2003 was motivated by the terminal services
availability. I'm in doubt about w2003's system restore features. I am
familiar with the feature on XP Pro and could not find the xml file
defining the extension for backup. do you know where it is located or
how the mechanism works on 2003. I not quite a pro on that system since
it's only up and running for 5 days now...
