What would yur reccomendation be for a Windows 2000 web server setup? Should I set it up as a member sever of an existing domain or as its own domain master of a new domain. This server will be hosting a few web sites and will be residing on a different subnet than the present domain controller is. My question would also be, if it's sitting on a different subnet as someone suggested, how would I be able to make it a member server then? I do not think you can. TIA

 i would set it up as a stand alone server not a member of a domain...

this way adding the mutiple sites will be no problem..

andif you wanted to make it a membeer server you couldnt but you can make it an additional domain controller... just specify a "Bridgehead server" and it will replicate acress the different subnets....

  but again setting up a web server i would make it a stand alone server.. you will have alot less problems...

  Good Luck..

Being on a different subnet won't cause any problems.To give access to clients in other segments you need to setup a RRAS server and run the routing program.
Joining the domain is useful when there is an IPsec policy set or unauthenticated users are not allowed to view the web contents.there can be other issues like these that you may need to join the server to the domain.otherwise it causes you only more trouble
