Hello,
I'd like to build a network at home. I'd like to have a server to which I can connect my other computers. Do I need a server OS? Or I can use my Windows 2000? What hardware do I need? Do I need two network cards installed on my server?

Could you also please tell me good links (or books) where I can search for some information related to this topic?

Thanks,
dsuratman

What do you want your server to do? If you want to run a domain, then you will need a Server version of windows (or if you really wanna have fun, you can run a domain controller using linux)

I'd like to run a domain, so I guess need a Server version of windows. Hmm, that's going to be expensive right? I'm trying to stay away from Linux because I think it's harder for me compare to the Microsoft's OS'es.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully this is a good start. I'm actually hoping someday I can be MCSE/MCSD/MCAD. Any suggestion where to start? Thanks once again
