    If you are using a Home PC, there is no need for Win2003 & Win2k. You should better be content with WinXP. If you still insist, it doesnt matter which order you install them. But, it makes sense to install WinXP first.

    Theres one more thing thats eating me. Does that WinXP of yours exist on one disc?

    1=>(if home computer) No need for Xp and 2000 both. Either 1 is enough, XP recommended.
    2=>(if office computer) Server 2003 is enough
    3=>(if the reason is experimentation)NT adds all available windows in its BOOT.ini automatically.....so the order should be 2k->XP->NT (i hope u have a good system config)

    keep only 2 if u want then...
    i thnk XP alone is ok..

    but if u want 2 then install 2000 1st and then XP.

    3 OS is just useless and madness...ur all the space eaten by OSs...:)

    simply do not go forward and use Microsoft Windows 2003 Sever as too many services and resources of your system will be utilised. But if u still insist on onstalling WIN2003Server have atleast 512 Mb of ram in u r system for a smooth functioning.
    Install the Operating sytem in following order.
    .1. Windows XP (Prof or Home Editions)
    .2. Windows 2003 Sever Enterprise Edition (5 different versions are available)

    Now why not Windows 2000 Prof coz XP is an advanced version to Windows 2000. I guess r u planning to try for any of the Microsoft Certifications.......???
