I am talking about Windows server, i would be right to assume that AD only happened on a Win2k environment and above?

main difference is Active Directory which is a big change in domain structure and administration from NT. Another is Domain Controllers. Gone are PDC BDC domain controllers when you use active directory intergrated DNS. All DCs are peers [though one has the a global catalog]. Cat5 Cat6 ethernet cables? heres a link to a pretty good article on the difference between cables. http://www.quality-buys.com/ethernet-cables.html

Windows 2000 implements AD, NT doesn't. 2000 also has a better memory management (We used to have NT Servers running Lotus Domino which we had to reboot every week because the memory handles got filled, whereas w2k servers only had to be rebooted every 2nd week!). NT won't run on as much hardware as 2k does (More Drivers available). NT is OLD. 2k supports USB and is somewhat plug & play.
