Hi

I'm trying to teach myself Windows 2000 Server. I haven't got past the installation stage yet.

The basic plan is to have a server with about 20 machines connected to it. All accounts will be on a Domain.

Back to the installation. I've picked server licensing option

Q. What services do I need to choose during the installation process?

Q. Do I make the server machine belong to a DOMAIN when asked? If I go yes, I'm asked for a username and password. What to do?

Q. Is there an idiot's guide to setting up servers anywhere on the internet? Oh help, please help.

Lots of points. Thanks

no do not make the server a member of the domain during install...
after install of the server go to
  Start > Run
 then tpe in "DCPROMO"  without quotes...
this will walk you thru the domain setup.....

you client computers you can choose domain during install and the username and password is the Admin user on the domain controller( server)
 this should get you started...
  i will find some links to help you out more  good luck
