Need to set up a server - need advice

  ian_w 20:15 03 Dec 2005


I need to set up a server for a small network of 6-8 machines (XP home & pro)

Essentially we need the abilty to share documents and then be able to back up the one central storage point.

I am guessing we need a server with Windows Server 2003 - but have no idea as to how to set it up. Is it easy?

Where does one start?

I am aware of domains - do I need to set one up so that each machine logs into the domain? Is this hard to set-up?

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thank you.
