Hi all,
I want to create a wired home network so i can learn windows server 2003, exchange, active directory etc.
I have broadband (with a bt home hub)
i have 3 laptops and a pc all running xp pro
i have a netgear 10/100 8 port switch

On a previous question in ee i was informed i could have achieved this with virtualization however i would like to create a wired network. i obviously need cabling etc but can you inform me how i set this up or give me some pointers on how to achieve this.
i have limited knowledge and experience - any pointers??
thanks
