Heya all Im trying to find out more about network/servers and how pcs connect to networks.

What I want to know is - is this the correct way in connecting pc's to a server?
1) you set up a user account and computer account on the server on active directory
2) you then connect the pcs to a switch/hub which connects to a server using an ethernet cable
3) On the 5 pc's set them up to use the network domain by going into system properties and changing the member of field to network domian name?
