I'm looking into buying a new laptop. Came across Dell's Inspiron 8000
which is only supported with W2K and WME/98. I will use the laptop for
development with an older version of Sybase, Sybase SQL Server 11.0.2 (SWR
6542) which I think is only supported with NT... It seems pretty fussy to
get the Inspiron to work with NT (video, USB drivers etc).

Before I go ahead and by the Laptop (which has enough capability in terms
of disk etc) I will try to install the SQL Server on W2K on a deskside PC.

Does anyone know if this is meaningless, that is I would probably never get
11.0.2 to work with W2K ??

Thanks in advance

To be pedantic, 11.0.2 is not supported *at all* any more. However I would
expect it to run fine as when it comes down to it, win 2000 "is" NT. You may
have problems with the install putting program groups in the wrong places, but
if you can get around that it should work.

cheers,

Thanks Tonyi
Yapp, I know its not supported anymore, we have no problem so the upgrade
has not been on top of the list...

Ok, I will go ahead and try to install on a deskside PC with W2K, if I get
it to work I'll buy the Dell....(feels wrong for an pre HP employee;-)

You'll like the Dell. I have a 7500 with 43GB of hard drive space and I really like it.
It is a bit heavy but that keeps me in shape.
