One of Nichol's network technicians says she doesn't believe the servers are capable of handling Windows Server 2008. She adds that Nichol has:

Four servers that each contain 1 GHz processors, 256 MB of RAM, dual NICs, dual power supplies, DVD-ROM drives, and 20-GB hard drives.
eight servers that each contain 2 GHz processors, dual NICs, dual power supplies, dual hard drives, DVD-ROM drives, and 40 GB hard drives
Two servers that each contain 500 MHz processors, 256 MB of RAM, single NICs, single power supplies, CD-ROM drives, and 10GB hard drives

Explain what components she'll need to add or upgrade, at minimum, to make Nichol's servers capable of running Windows Server 2008. Also, explain why you don't recommend leaving all the servers at the minimum hardware requirements. Write down four questions you will ask the Nichol technicians about their network environment to help determine which servers might need more system resources.
