Along with the security concerns, there might be hardware capacity.  In my
admittedly ancient Windows experience, PDCs always required as much
hardware as you could throw at them.  In general, it's not advisable to
run _anything_ else on a PDC, unless you have an uber-powered mega-machine
like a four-headed alpha (yes, I know they're not supported anymore) with
about 8GB of RAM and a striped SCSI/RAID array.

But I'm waa-aay off topic here.  Sorry.
