Using Windows XP Drivers in Windows Server 2003

Is it possible to extract the drivers from the Windows XP Pro CD for use in Windows 2003 Server? I'm trying to run 2003 Standard on some older equipment that XP has drivers for, but 2003 Server does not. The manufacturer does not make 2000, XP, or 2003 drivers for the hardware at all.

Thanks,

What equipment is it? Maybe someone has tried the same thing before. Also what if you had it search your XP cd for drivers?

Should work. I think it's the same with Windows 2000 and XP, you can use the 2k drivers for XP, but it's not guaranteed. I can't test it, all I have is a test environment with Win2k3 running on a brand new HP Proliant server, no antique stuff on there :p.
