hi all,

thining of using 2008 Foundation version for a small office setup. ive been reading:

""The domain containing Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation must not have trust relations with another domain. In case the domain does have trust relationships the server will display a warning message and if not rectified will shut down in 10 days. ""

our offices are connected and we have NAT rules on the routers to allow access to each remote office. however the 'domains' wont be joined so the above statement shouldnt concerne me right?

No, this is fine, as long as the domains are seperate this will not cause you an issue.

they can talk to each other using usernames and passwords, but just not "trust" each other.

Yup, Coast-IT is right. You won't notice such problems like in trust relationship with other domain(s).
