Thanks Helen, but i cancelled the installation.
I must collect more information about Clasis Arquitecture.
I'm not sure that it will be our best chice now.
I'm reading then comparation in
od the two type of dbs and in this pages I read that Clasic Server
is an old arquitecture closely to be out. And it says that with this
version I have more chances of corruption. Now I´m affraid to use it.
I will test the Clasic Server more before think to change it.

thanks and sorry for my english
