What you're asking is worth way more than 20 points. Some of us have spent years learning this stuff. Having said that.....
you need 2000 server, not w2k pro
then after installing you need to run dcpromo
this creates the forest/domain
then you need to add the computers/users to the domain (so that other machines can access the resources now controlled by your "domain"

No, you need a server OS
w2k server, w2003 server, even NT4  server, but it MUST be  a server OS

the best you can do is a workgroup (peer to peer) and you don't need even w2k for that 9x can be in a peer to peer

Domain = centralized admin or users and resources
peer to peer = each machine controls access to it's resources and users

domain vs workgroup (peer to peer) will have no affect on your network
I'll repeat myself
Domain = centralized admin or users and resources
peer to peer = each machine controls access to it's resources and users)

Well, that depends on how BIG your network will be.  If you are networking 2 PCs and a laptop, it's a wasted effort to put a server with a domain controller in.  If you are talking, say, 25 users and up, then you Definitely want a domain, or even better, a directory service, but you don't want to experiment yourself - hire a professional to do it for you.

hi,

Win2k is the upgrade version of win NT.
But for win2k i have to used active directory.
Just install it and after installtion there will be a screen that will help u.
Follow what it need and i think u will be able to make u own domain.

after you install the windows 2000 go to the run window and run "dcpromo.exe"  this is the only way to promote a member server to a domain controller. Once you have a domain controller, you automatically have an active directory domain. There is no "magic" screen like asurada2003 says.
