    Yes, vBulletin can run on anything that will run a webserver that supports php and mysql, so this includes windows 2000 2003 and even xp if you wanted to.

    There is not a tool yet, however if you can provide test data to our Import Developer Jerry he should be able to come up with something

                Hi Jerry

                I run the Technology at Play site ( and am gearing up for the change from MegaBBS to vBulletin.

                If you have time (understanding you are very busy) I would greatly appreciate some help/advise regarding the database conversion.

                As you can appreciate... my major conconcern is not losing the last 'X' years worth of data.

                Looking forward to the 'move'.

                Thanks in advance.
