I'm trying to setup a basic test environment of a 180 day evaluation copy of Windows 2003 on my IBM ThinkPad T43p. This is obviously not a production setup. I'm just trying to get this configured so I can follow along in the Managing and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment self-paced training kit Book.
I'm trying to Add a Role of Domain Controller, but I'm getting stuck at "You must configure the TCP/IP networking protocol". I'm not able to configure any TCP properties because their don't seem to be any NIC drivers for the T43p which support Windows 2003.
Even though my laptop doesn't seem to offer any drivers that support Windows 2003, is there anyway around this? Can i still get the Role of Domain Controller configured on this laptop?
