Appreciate your reply about the DHCP...so I suspected.
I also have W2003 server but my friend said 2k is more stable. Do you agree?
I wanted it installed because I want to learn...set up a network here at home.
Thx for being a resource...if I can help you, send me a reply.
Ahh, that makes sense, but If you want to learn server admin, you do need a server to practice on. And that's the point, it has to function as a server. Running W2k (or 2003) Server edition on a machine that is also being used as a work station and doesn't function as an authentication server on a network really gets you no where. As for 2003, I haven't heard of major problems, but if you want to learn Active Directory, which is an important subject, then 2003 is better.
