4.9 and 5.9 respectively, according to apple.com.

I think W2k3 (note the 3--Windows 2003 Server) is a bit heavier duty 
than XP home or pro. Or at least 
has more dead weight to contend with. The machine is running win2k 
now and, if it had more than 128MB RAM, would be quite perky. I 
even found a rescued P2-233 Gateway usable with WinXPPro and Office
XP Pro. But then I ran Win95 October and Office95 beta on a 386/25
with 8MB/520MB. :)
