Hi Experts,

I'm looking for a dummies guide to setting up a new windows 2008 Server as a member server in a branch office.  Done this with 2003 a few times but not with 2008.  I'm aware of the need to adprep the Domain.  I'm looking for a guide for the rest, setting up DNS,DHCP, roles etc.

I'm looking looking for the ISBN of the WIn 2008 Server admin guide, more like a walk-through... :-)

Many thanks J
