I am about to setup an internal network, with a few winxp clients and a win2003 server acting as a domain controller. Users will login and have a network drive and roaming user profile.
I have done this before, and the internet connection was provided by a hardware router setup with DHCP - so all clients and the server received their IP's automatically, along with DNS etc.
The network I am about setup will require me to assign an IP to each machine, and a DNS - will I encounter any issues when setting all this up? Will providing fixed address info stop the client from connecting to the server properly? Any info would be great.
