I'm trying to figure out if I can move a server on my network (currently running Windows Server2000) onto an XServe. The sofware supports AIX 4.3.3/5L 64 Bit.

No. (At least not at the moment).
AIX will only run on specific IBM chips.
It supports a swag of 3rd parts drives/peripherals so I would hedge a bet that it could support some of the other internals but the kernal won't run on the 970 that the Mac uses (currently).
We have 7 XServes (I even have a test one for myself) and I had yellow dog linux running on mine for a while.
I would love to put either solaris (perhaps 10) or aix on them.

Thanks Dobby. I'm trying to do a long range plan (2 year) to change this server over to something accessible to the rest of my Mac network, for all of the obvious maintenance and management reasons.
