* Domain Controller,
* Exchange Server 2007,
* SQL Server 2008,
* Anti Virus Server (Kaspersky / Norton) Windows 2K8,
* 25 Windows XP Clients,
Should my domain name be MYDOMAINNAME.LOCAL

Which all Security Policies i must consider for internal & external logins into my network into my domain?
What can be the password policies for all domain users?
What forest / domain level i need to keep?
What audit policy i need to configure?
