EE for home use?

i think you've gone a bit overboard; windows server 2003 standard edition would be easier to install and not have the overhead that EE with a DC will bring. xp home can't even login to a domain controller.

if you're connecting to dsl/cable, your router can handle dhcp and gateway responsibilities. as for sharing, just create users with the same login on the server as on the respective pc's. then you can share folders easily and will be able to apply security and/or quotas.

thanks. but the reason I installed the enterprise edition is because I got it for free from school. my main goal is to have a my server set up to stream media and learn from setting it up but i seem to be in way over my head I just installed media server but I don't know how to get to the media from a stand alone pc

Hopefully they'll cover this in the classes about this.

The entire idea of those 100 day OS installs is to give the owners a taste and supply the classrooms with cheap test installs. Then the class proceeds to cover the ins and outs of the OS.

Just don't miss the class.

If you feel I've misread you, just click on the report button.

-> There is no free Windows 2003 Server handed out legitimately such as you tell in your posts. Since you've left school the academic rights to use the school's copy ended as well.
