Sorry youve lost me

you have 1 pc and you are asking can I have a network with one PC and nothing else? then no

If you mean can I network a PC that has a LAN card then Yes :)

A network consists on more than one networkable componants (pc's, printers, servers etc) connected by a connection meduim (wire, wireless etc) that can communicate using a communications protocol (TCP, IPX etc) usually running a network aware operating system (windows, Linux etc)

Well, you can setup a Network using just one computer, but it better be a high powered one.  You can purchase Microsoft VM and install multiple OSs on it, including the Windows server version acting as a Domain Controller.  Again, you will need a lot of power to run this, including at the very minimum 1 GB of RAM and a high end processor...

If this is what you are referring to...  :)

DCPromo your 2003 Server, and make it a domain controller.  Once this is done, you can boot to your XP OS (while your DC is running) and add it to the domain..  Guess the question I should ask is "do you know how to setup a DC?"
