We installed a new server using Windows server operating system and the second computer uses XP. Before installing this new server everything worked as it should with the KVM switch. Since installing the new server I could not make the old switch work and now went a bought a new switch and it still does not work. Could it be a setting on the new computer?

Yes it can however XP isn't a network operating system. Your server would be deprived of many features and options that make a server a server. I've heard of people putting XP on their servers, and if all you are doing is using the Poweredge 1650 as a file server then fine. But you don't need a server for that, could have used a desktop with XP as a file server.
Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is
for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like
you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from
other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before
installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use
"troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program
installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will
allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run.
Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))
Here could be five various steps you can go about.
Method 1: Perform a clean install of Windows XP Use
this method for a clean installation of Windows XP. A clean
installation removes all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and
reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and
programs to an empty (clean) hard disk.
Method 2: Upgrade to Windows XP Use this method
if you are upgrading to Windows XP from Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft
Windows Millennium Edition, or Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional.
Method 3: Install Windows XP to a new hard disk Use
this method to install Windows XP to a new hard disk. This is typically
done when a new hard disk is installed on your computer.
Method 4: Install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel installation) Use
this method to install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel
installation) to either run two operating systems, or to access,
repair, or retrieve data from a damaged disk.
Method 5: Perform a multiple boot operation Use
this method to install Windows XP as a separate operating system on
your computer. This lets you install more than one operating system on
your computer and select which operating system that you want to use
every time that you start your computer.

To install IIS server in Windows xp you need to put the installation disk and then select " Install windows components". It would give you a list of applications you can install from where you can install IIS server.
Restart the computer and you can see the home page of iis 7.0 comming up if you type localhost in IE.
In this case, there's no mystery as to the cause of the problem. You will be unable to use this printer with your operating system because there are no existing print drivers that work with 64 bit Vista. Your printer will work with Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, but not with Vista at all.
You have only two options...use a different HP printer that will work with Vista, or get a PC that has one of the supported operating systems on it and connect your current printer to that PC.
Sorry. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but that's the best I can do until the proper drivers become available.
You can not upgrade to Windows 2000 server from windows XP Professional.
All you can do is to purachase a copy of Windows 2000 server with as much as client license you want. And install it in your system on a sperate partition.
Or you can install windows 2000 server after formatting your hard disk. This way you will loose any information on your computer.
Installation instructions are available on the internet in the following link:
If you are using a simple stand alone machine, your current windows XP professional is the best choice according to my knowledge.
All the best
