I am thinking of purchasing a new 8887-V and I was wondering if anyone has had any issues with installing Win Server 2003 with this model?

Why would someone want to do that though? Is this a whole new OS or more like an add-on ?

Win Server 2003 can be run on any minimally compatible system.
I do heavy biz web application development and this new OS manages the memory in the kernel , which boosts application performance etc etc.
Plus I always love to feel the New OS cringe when I cant find a driver etc...hence my question.

I just got the 180 day evaluation disk in the mail, I don't think I will be buying it, but I would like to try it out. I want to keep my XP Pro available. Do you guys think this would work as a dual boot situation? (and be easily removed when it expires?)

YES and NO. I imagine it'll be somewhat easy to setup a dual-boot, but I do not think there's any easy way to remove an MS operating system short of a re-format of the HD.
So at least set it up in it's own partition and be careful where you install apps and things between one and the other (i.e. shared data partitions)

I've been running Server 2003 in vmware on my beast. I haven't had any issues as of yet. Just make sure your running workstation 4.
