What is it called when you have a server and client computers networked together with a domain and the ability to login from any of the client computers and have your files. Also, since I believe you have to do some configuring on the server to get this to work, does anyone have some links to good tutorials on the subject (preferably ones using windows server 2003). Thanks for any help.

I hope blcArmadillo is young and enthusiastic.

A domain Server with remote login on multiple users took me 2 Years to work out, and one week to actually install it on 4 PC's 1 Server and 1 Network Printer

In your case a formal education or class probably would have helped you out alot. It is not that difficult. When I was in school, one of the very last classes I took we had to install Windows 2000 Server as a Domain controller. This was when 2000 server had just come out. Took us one class period to do it. It it really not that difficult. I think it was harder for me to setup Linux to act as a Domain controller with Samba.

Thanks guys for the reply. I worked on getting things going a bit yesterday evening. I got the domain controller and active directory all setup and started working on the domain policies. I've found the built in help utility Microsoft provides helps a ton. In response to kimsland's comment "I hope blcArmadillo is young and enthusiastic." Don't worry I'm still in high school and love this kind of stuff so I don't mind staying up till two or three in the morning getting stuff to work.

OK I didn't spend the entire 2 yrs just on Server 2003

But although I do have a lot of schooling in MCE (it was easier !! than MCSE) and more (all up 11 years of schooling (I should just done a degree - too many certificates) And minimum 20 years on computers (including 1000's of late nights)
It did take a long time (not just to install it - 30 mins) but to make it work with remote everything and Server everything.

If it's any consolation, re-image takes about an hour !
