I have a couple of general questions on what the steps are for setting up a workgroup network manually.
I know that win xp pro has a network setup utility built onto the cd and I have used that before. Does win xp home & media center also have the same setup on their respective CD's ? and or can you use a win xp pro cd on home & media center to run the network setup?
Also is it possible to setup a workgroup network by just going into the computer properties and changing the workgroup name to "mshome or whatever" on a 4 or 5 pc network....
Next I know that I that I have to setup the IP & Subnet, Gateway and DNS server ip if I don't allow it to be done automatically.
I guess what I want to know is there additional software that needs to be installed.
also is it ok to connect win xp media center, home, and pro operating systems together.
