Hello

I am currently working on creating a Active Directory Test domain.  I have so far created

2003 domain called let say test.org(no access to internet for now)
DNS
Couple of OUs
users
computers
groups

Does anyone know of a website or book that would give me a step by step recipe on how to do this correctly? I feel that I am now over my head and would appreciate any and all help.  Also create an exchange server (2003 or 2007) too? the easier the better.  Thanks in advance!!

There is no single best way, each AD design relies on your business structure :)

Thanks for everyones input.  I am currently looking over what was sent.  I also noticed a set of training videos from Train Signal, has anyone tried this approach, just curious.  Thanks!
