Real simple one for you guys. I have had years of experience networking and supporting large networks but have never had to setup a network (except 2 PCs connected together) of any size. Until now (tomorrow)
I plan to just have a 2K3 server connected to a switch with 4 PCs running XP connected to said switch. The server is to act as file server, exchange server and internet proxy server. With this in mind, is there anything I should know in advance before just 'unboxing' and installing O/Ss? Could I just 'Wing' it? Would you suggest IP on such a small network (site not going to be connected to any others).
