I have Citrix Metaframe server 4.0 Advanced edition CD.
I have windows 2003 server Enterprise edition and another machine WXP professional.
I would to install citrix in this test environment.
So, do I need to install licensing server in the same server as Citrix Metaframe server 4.0 ?
This is just a test environment and want to make a user from WXP machine access citrix through web client and program neighborhood for published application.
Can someone tell me the steps about installing Citrix Metaframe server 4.0, starting from the begining, such as how to make the system in application mode if this is really the first step and going down the steps until the Citrix Metaframe server 4.0 is installing without errors?

    There's a great document written by Douglas Brown on how to build a Citrix PS4.0 server from bare metal, starting with the OS install, components, through installing Citrix.  It's a fantastic reference and boilerplate document/pdf.  You can access it here:
