I have 8 computers on a peer to peer network in one office and 4 pc's in another office a few miles apart. I would like to know the possibility and hardware reuired to create a network using only one Server between both offices and using the rest of the current PC's (running different flavours of windows) as terminals .
Would I need a second server in the other office or could you connect remotley etc. I am a big bit lost please help.
I also need a webserver which will run seperately.

Its possible :)

You will need one Terminal Server, which may act as a DC to the office as well.  This is generally a big NO NO, but if the company is not going to grow rapidly, then you might get away with it.

Just make sure that your Group Policy limits the rights that the remote users will have.

You will also need to think about security between the two sites (i.e. 2 firewalls that maybe have VPN capabilities).
