Hi,

according to the ProLiant Server Support Matrix for Windows SBS 2000 is supported on the ML 350 G4, see http://h10018.www1.hp.com/wwsolutions/windows/index-all.html
If you click in the table on the field ML 350 G4 / SBS 2000 you will find additional information (documentation, drivers and so on).

Regards,

We helped a customer go through this install on server hardware. We found after the first attempt it is best to follow a manual install path and follow along with the Microsoft manual install of the product to get the best results. The SBS default process does not give good results, it is meant for the untrained.

I have always used the Microsoft installer for SBS 200x and never had any problem. Even after building a few hundred SBS servers I wouldn't think about not using the included setup program - so it really isn't for the "untrained" as you put it.

Adrian - you should look into possibly upgrading to SBS 2003, it runs circles around SBS 2000 in almost everything. It would be well worth spending the extra $$
