Windows 2k Server setup issues

1. I installed 2k server. After the first logon. A screen comes up that says Windows 2000 Server configuration.
I choose "This is the only server on the network" and click next and then the program does not respond. I even wasted my time and did a clean install and got the same thing. Anyone ever see this before?

2. The machine has 2 scsi drives is it beneficial to put the pagefile.sys on a striped drive. Also can you make the pagefile.sys too big? For example if the machine has 512 mb of ram and I make the pagefile 2 gb will that be better / worse or make no difference?

1. Yes, when the server has a problem with the NIC or a RAID controller that only has one drive attached.

2. A striped drive won't make that much difference, and you should select the page file based upon the intended use of the server. Start with 512 and go from there.

1. The machine does not have a raid controller. It has one nic (Intel)

2. This machine will be a intranet server. If I have 2 gb to give up for the pagefile, should I?

1. Okay, during the installation, did you assign the domain name and set the IP addressing? Is the NIC connected to anything?

2. I'd still start with 512 and go from there.

No domain name. IP is set and working correctly. No domain name I gave it a workgroup name because it will not belong to a domain. It will be the only machine sitting in a DMZ behind our firewall.

That's fine, but remember what you said above! This "is not" the only server on the network, firewall or not.
