That's quite different from my experience; we've been running 
Frontier/Manila on a W2K server for about 18 months and it never 
stressed the server at all. We've accumulated about 7.5 million hits in 
that time, and have had up to about 20 sites. Sounds like something 
else is going on with your system.
