After spending over 1000 USD for a server license another 60 USD is not very much, and is a good book, I have it.

Hi,

I do agree a bit with crissand (although i guess you didn't pay for the server license). Are you going to create a domain or do you just want to share simple files with this machine??

If you are going to create a domain, make sure to install the Windows server 2003 and then go to RUN and type in dcpromo. Then the machine will be a Domain Controller. After that, make sure to give the domain a distinctive name.

Then, right click the "My machine" icon on the desktop, choose properties and go to Network Identification. Make sure to add the XP machine into the domain using the domain administrator password.

For sharing the internet connaction, you have two options. Either use Internet Connection Sharing or a router. The router is the more expensive but better solution. ICS is for free (easy to set up, if you are going to do this, just ask and we'll help) but you will always need to have the DC on..

And just a small note. First off all, i would just try getting it to work with the info we gave. If you have questions along the way, feel free to ask. But we are here for free (and for our fun). Don't expect us to install the domain for you, you will need to do a bit of it yourself... Actually, it's not that hard...

Asking for step-by-step directions on setting up a network is kind of like asking for step-by-step directions on assembling a car.  There is far too much info to post here, especially since you want "detail" and want "an immediate solution".  The advice above is sound - buy a good book and take the time to learn properly.  When you run into problems, get help on E-E.

Then try the above, do a dcpromo on the Server 2003 machine (creates your domain) follow the on-screen instructions and if you run into problems post them here.

Up to now, I have not get a single acceptable answer.

The main question was realy simple.

We have : 1 windows 2000 server . 1 windows xp pro.

Both are connected to a router.

How I can  A: create a domain on  windows 2000 server .

B: Add  XP Pro to that domain.

Hi,

You might just be a little bit more nice, because i don't think you will get much help...

Do a dcpromo on the 2000 machine...

crissandCommented:
dcpromo on the server. Install dns, wins, dhcp, global catalog will be by default, fsmo roles also. Then join the xp pro to the domain you've created. The server's nic must have fixed address.

Anyway this is a question for 10 000 points, imho.

Hmmm, I didnt expect this to be this complecated.

I will wait few more days to see if I get any more complete comments.

humeniukCommented:
rhandels and crissand have both provided info about how to create the domain (ie. start -> run -> dcpromo and follow the directions).  After that, you can join your workstation to the domain.  To do this, right-click 'My Computer' and select 'Properties'.  In the 'System Properties' window, select the 'Computer Name' tab and then click 'Change' beside "To rename this computer or join a domain, click Change".  You can find a detailed tutorial here: www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/wxpjoind.html.  Remember that you will need a domain admin username/password to join the domain, so make sure you have that set up before trying to join the domain.

Off-topic: one of the challenges on E-E is trying to interpret incomplete or vague questions.  I'm sure you've experienced that yourself.   I'm sure you can see that << Please tell me (IN DETAIL) What are steps to make a Network. >> is not the same thing as << How I can  A: create a domain on  windows 2000 server.  B: Add  XP Pro to that domain. >>

They're thick, but at least they're dry and boring . . .
