You mentioned you made a VB6 system. Did you managed to connect to a sql-server that's on the same computer on that system? If you have, that would mean you just have to point from the local machine to the new server, either by name or IP. If you have not, you can try DAO or ADO.

If it's just for your thesis, I'd say a Windows XP would be sufficient enough. Unless you need something specific from Win NT.
