    Yes, you should be able to run a MySQL server on Windows 2003, however it is not a 'from the box' option.

    Visit, and goto the "Windows Downloads" area by scrolling down a little, and then pick a mirror to download the windows installer for MySQL.

    It shouldn't be too hard to install from here as you should be able to follow the installer.

    Please post back if any problems

    You're not going to get much of a Windows dedicated server at those prices though.

    As monaghan said, I don't think you'll find a server with that budget, as it costs for the actual server, plus the Windows 2003 licensing through the data center (or yourself)
