Can you run Server and Unlimited on one physical machine?

We need to serve a number of databases to internal users plus some of them to the web. We currently have a variety of FM Pro 3.x & 4.x clients connecting to a FM Pro 4 machine (_not_ 4 Server) that has the databases shared out and the Web Companion enabled. But we need the multi-threading of FM Server and also want to upgrade to 5.

Do we now need two physical servers, or can we stick with just one?

The server in question is a B&W G3 with 256 MB of RAM, ample disk space, etc. so we're not as worried about the machine's ability to handle both but of both software products to be able to co-exist.

Filemaker is no different than any other database server, and should NEVER be run on a machine in conjunction to any other application.

For both performance and security reasons, put Unlimited on a seperate machine.
