Could someone tell me whether windows-based LAN is reliable enough for a on-line working application - for example a program using shared database in a peer-to-peer network.

If you talk about peer-to-peer in NT Workstation or W2K Professional:
it is as stable/reliable as the Server editions. It's even binary the same code, just with a few deliberate limitations because the underlying OS is tuned for workstation and notfor server tasks.
Note that also that tuning includes a limit of 10 concurrent sessions.
How reliable the Server editions are? Wow, many companies DO run mission-critical stuff on them, which I myself would not see as their primary strength...

Hope this helps,

Sure, my company has been running a Peer-To-Peer Network with windows 95/98 for some time and have been using MS Access as a shared database. It would be easier if there is at least one winNT or win2000 running in the network.
