Well. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...003+boot+disks and NO i dont think you can "Update" XP to a server OS. Can't you make a dos bookt disk and enter the CD via the command line ?

Yeah that should work memory. Just create a statup disk from windows 98 or something and let computer boot from that to the c prompt. From there go to your cd drive and you should be able to install.
Another option would be a network install. You might do some searching on that and see what you come up with. I have a windows server 2003 administrators handbook so I'll look through it and see what I find but you might find something quicker via google.

i think Windows 98 Bootable is the best option for you. in DOS bootable you would have to install the CD-Rom driver to access the CD-Rom. Windows98 bootable comes with CD Rom support. it's small takes only a single floppy. you will just have to select "boot with CD Rom Support" and then from the dos prompt you can install the WIN 2003 Server.
