Hi!
as the title say, id like to use a server 2008 Std as a Fax relay for some XP client
however, I ran into some troubles:

-  the server is 64bits while the clients are 32bits
when I'm trying to add the 32bits support for the shared fax printer, it prompt and ask for a cd containing the files, which is not on the 2008 server installation disc.

- second problem would be the workgroup environement, is it possible at all to use that role without an AD, if so, how can I proceed?

thanks in advance!
