 Server 5.5 and FM 5.5
Using Filemaker server 5.5 I still have the need for Filemaker License in
each computer ?

For a office with 10 - 14 PC (windows 98 and 2K) which option is the best ?
Unlimited or 10 - 14 of FM licenses or FM server?

TIA

Yes. Server serves, and FM acts as client, and you need a client license
for every person who is going to use FM as a client.

Your question is wrong. It should be "Which option is best? Unlimited
with everyone accessing my files via browser, OR FM Server with 10-14
licenses of FM?"

So with the right question, my answer is:
It depends on if you can put your solution into a format that is
acceptable via browser. I prefer to use Filemaker server with Filemaker
clients, because that gives me huge flexibility, and EASE of development
compared to setting up a ton of web forms/pages, etc.

PS: based on your question, it seems that the proper uses of the various
filemaker products are not clear in your mind. Read more product
information on Filemaker's web site, I advise.

Yes. Server is just to provide correct FM only access to relevant
database files with some other features. All users accessing
Server require a copy of FM Standard.

Depends on what you are doing. And the right question is actually:

Unlimited (so they have web only access) or Server + 10-14 FM Standard.

See:

for good descriptions of what each product is.
