    These links are nice, but like most of what I find on a search, it doesn't give me a "How-To" setup File Replication.;

    For example, even on the WIndow 2003 server help, it says under Initiate File Replication, to
    Click on the domain root or link for which you would like to initiate replication
    One the Action menu, slect Configure Replication

    Well.. "Configure Replication" never shows up. I have the File Replication service running, but can't figure out what "step" I have missed, being that there are no step-by-step instructions.

    Thats what Im looking for.

    Thats a GREAT step by step for DFS... which is pretty easy to setup... but at the bottom when it gets to File Replication, it turns to only a few lines. If only they would of continued thier step by step at the end.
