I need to setup a 2-server public-facing web/db server on a MS infrastructure and wanted to see if someone could provide a good "how to" document/website that can help me through the process. The public-facing web server will be a 2K3 server and the supporting DB server will be 2K3 with SQL 2005.

For NLB cluster I would say the servers need to be difnately in the same domain.Once NLB is setup the its just  members act just as a normal server. I think with the database server you can have in different domain as long as they a trust relationship
