    If you have a passport, you can goto

    Then click on "IT learning and Certification" on the left and click "Free technet virtual lab" on the right

    Then click on Windows 2003 and then DFS. This lets you configure and play around with DFS on microsoft's virtual servers. It also has .pdf file that tells you step by step how to setup DFS.

    Some of the instructions are specific to R2 but even without R2 you can use DFS and create everything else....

    This will give you some basic idea.
