I'll second Claudio's comment - W2k has yet to pass our
stability testing - we still use NT4 on sites. The thing
that seems to cause a problem is if a network fault causes
W2k to 'change' it's bindings so that an active route is
messed up. The database connection sometimes needs a windows
restart to clear it, while NT4 only needs a ibserver
stop/start. Havn't tested XP yet!
