r14.0 and a2ki or adt2i on same server

All:

I am in the process of migrating our CAD operation to a new server. We use
R13 network version (seldom) and R14.0 network version (not 14.01) as our
mainstay CAD application. The new server is running NT Server 4.0 with SP6
(SP6a I believe). The clients are a mix of NT 4.0 and 95.

I would like to do the following:
1. Install our R14.0 and the ADLM license manager and tools on our new
server, and migrate our 6 users to the new server.
2. Uninstall R14.0 and the ADLM from our old server and decommission it.
3. Upgrade our 6 R13 licenses to 2000 or 2000i or Arch. Desktop 2000 or
Arch. Desktop 2000i at the beginning of our fiscal year (10/2000).

Would the following course of action be the smart way to accomplish this:?
1. Upgrade our R14.0 to R14.01 and the accompanying ADLM software.
2. Install whichever version of A2K we choose when the time comes.

or

1. Find a way to convince the boss to find the upgrade money to A2K now,
install A2K and ADLM to replace our R13 software.
2. Install R14.0 using the A2K ADLM software to license our R14 seats.

How does one verify the ADLM version since there is no "about" box to query?
We installed R14.0 shortly after it was released.

For what it's worth, I like to leap frog releases in this manner so I can
keep disruption to a minimum and productivity up for our small group.

Thanks for your help.

Jerry:

Thank you for the article link, and yes it was helpful. It appears that the
best course of actin is to beg for money to get the AutoCAD 2000 or 2000i
now so I can avoid the hassles of updating the ADLM at a later date.
