Cisco Catalyst 3550 24PT 100BFX MTRJ Switch - How to Configure...Please Help!!

I have just been tasked to install a small "Internal only" domain test network.  It will not be allowed to access the internet! Strictly internal!!!  Purchased equipment:

Compaq ML 530 Server w/Server 2K3 Standard
15 Dell GX270 PCs w/Win 2K
WS-C3550-24-FX-SMI - Cisco Catalyst 3550 24PT 100BFX MTRJ Switch

The Server is built and the PCs are configured, but I have no idea how to configure the Cisco switch.  Could someone please give me instructions (along with a few trade secrets) or point me in the right direction.

Thanx-in-Advance!

Switches are true plug and play. There is absolutely no configuration required!
You CAN configure lots of stuff to manage the switch, setup VLAN's, layer 3 routing, etc. If all you're doing is plugging in 1 server and the workstations, just plug 'em in...

Yes, the Server will be plugged into the switch and fibers will run from the switch into a patch panel to connect the PCs that are plugged into floor/wall plates that terminate back at the patch panel. Now since we have been tinkering with it (Express Setup) is there anything we may have to do too reset it????

Not much you can do with express setup except give it an IP address, so you should not have to reset anything. If you do,
you can connect to the console port, enable prompt, and type "write erase" and then reboot. It comes back up to factory defaults...
