Has anyone ever experienced any networking problems between a server with Windows 2000 loaded on it and Windows XP WorkStations. We don't want to do this if there's going to be major problems. Thanks for any input or insights on this.

No problems whatsoever. Should work as well as any other OS with a Windows network client.

Working with a multi OS environment is a bit different for me. I have a mixture of XP PRO, Win2K and NT 4.0. The problems I have experienced is the Win XP Pro computers on the network, connecting to the Win2K server. There seems to be intermitent latency, but I seem to have resolved that by forcing our NIC's to the appropriate speed/duplex. Also, any network will be latent if multiple protocols are introduced. I did notice that when the network switches were adjusted to remove Multicast, that sped things RIGHT up.... So to reiterate, the only ones I have problems with are the XP pro computers and that is mainly Network browsing..
