Network Setup

I'm about to set up my server and one workstation at home so that I can learn more about network administration on the Windows 2000 server. However, I am reading through an Active Directory manual and it's stating that domain names need to be registered with www.internic.org. If I am simply creating domain(s) and user(s) in a "private" environment, then I should still be able to proceed without registering, shoudn't I? Also, how would this affect e-mail? I am thinking of setting up a internet broadband account with my cable provider using a combo (adsl, router, firewall)?

Thanks.

Yes as long as you dont want any internet related function using your domain name you dont need to register your domain name . You can use any domain name for your testing purpose .
  Regarding e-mail , it depends , If you r planning to go for POP3 email where e-mail will come to your ISP & you download it from there then there is no problem . But if you plan to use Microsoft exchage on any other e-mail server of your own then you will have to register your dns , so that people can send mails to you .
  You also need to check with your Service provider if they provide you with static IP to register DNS .
