I did have some w2k cd's lying around

Not sure where they might be (or even if I still have them)as we have been moving and lots of "useless" stuff is buried in large piles of boxes that I am only slowly going thru.

Will tell u if I find them but may be a few weeks away . . .

If you get the server version, you can make it a domain controller.
Makes using DOS PCs with LanManager much easier. I've got a P4 setup doing this, but it's never plugged in when I need it :(

No boxed versions here though sorry, I had a legit key but just got the media off the net.

I've got a version of NT4 server or can set up a linux box if need I need a domain controller but wouldn't turn down a copy of w2k server if it gets offered. Need to set up a wireless link to my DSL router though so I can hook a switch to in the Hobby room though.

Got some RiscOS 3.6 roms coming, along with a spare 710 card, so I can sort out cdrom access issues to one of my RiscPCs

Sorry didn't get a chance today.

It was a rather sobering lesson reinforcing the statement that you only live once. I've spent most of the day consoling staff and making sure the required help was available.

Ill check tomorrow though.
