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.

      The company that I work for is interested in web enabling various databases. Our web servers are Netscape Enterprise Server 2.0 with NES 3.5.1 installed. The operating system on the server is Irix 6.4 (Unix).
      Does anyone if we can install and run Filemaker our current system or would we need to purchase a new server or operating system. I am not a server/operating system techie so any help would be greatly appreciate!

      Forgive me if this question's been asked.
      I administer a configuration that makes use of FileMaker Pro Server on one machine and FileMaker Pro Unlimited on another. The databases are all on the Server machine. All web interface files are on the Unlimited machine. This is on all on NT. I set up access for users to their web stuff so that they have control over changing that interface. The complaint I often get is that the "default" html file (usually default.htm) is left open and that they cannot replace the file with a new file. All other HTML/CDML files can be replaced. When you try to replace it, you get the message that another process has the file open. Shutting down related databases, etc. makes no change. I actually have to shut down FileMaker Pro Unlimited to cause the file to be released so that it can be replaced. Has anybody else had this problem and is there a way around this??
