Upgrade OS Windows NT 4.0 to Windows 2000 Server on ProLiant 800

I want to upgrade the OS system on a ProLiant 800 450MHZ server from NT 4.0 to Windows 2000.
Is it possible for that CPU speed (Microsoft page do not list the server as compatible. First comnpatible one got 550MHZ!)? Are there any problems known, installing Windows 2000 as a new installation on such a server?
