We run WSAD 5 on XP. We ran WAS on 2000, so I assume it can be run on XP.

then there is a typo in the Redbook "IBM WebSphere Application
Server V5.1 System.Management and Configuration uration
WebSphere Handbook Series".

The table on page 25 shows cross for Windows 2000 and XP rows only for Enterprise Edition. Not for ND and Base edition. I wondered yesterday, cause I had installed it on XP and thought it would be running happily.
I agree. Here's the link:
