    My question is this:
    Can I use my new laptop (the laptop hasn't even gotten here yet new) to partition the HDD to put Windows Server 2003 on part of it and XP home on the other part of it? I'm only asking because I've never tried doing it with server 2003. I only need server 2003 for learning purposes only, to get my MCSE cert. I need to simulate using it per the learning kit. Yes yes, I know "why not use VMWare?" I tried and I need ISS but XP home doesn't have it and rather have it on my new laptop instead of my home PC.

    So, if I can do this, then would I simply reinstall XP home fresh but just partition the HDD, then slap the server 2003 disc in and start installing it on the other partition? Doesn't sound complicated. heh.
    Thank you :eek:)
