Redefining the OS

Tired from the flight back. Much stress. No time to tell long stories and no concentration to type them. BigHugeTelco made sure I wouldn't have to.

And I quote, verbatim:
We are in a process of building a new development server. Our existing Development Server is operating on Windows NT .
The new development server will be built on Microsoft Office 2000. Can you please let us know the procedure or the steps to be followed to migrate a server from one machine to another running on different operating system . A detail document will be benefical as we dont have much idea on this.
You go right ahead and install $OurBigApp on Office 2000, Sparky. Make sure the DNS server is on Excel and remember that FrontPage isn't supported as a document server platform.

He probably meant Windows 2000 in which case migrating from NT is already documented... extensively.
