Domain Question on Windows Server 2003?
When installing Windows server 2003 It asks me if I want to make it a workstation or a domain. Well what I want to know is when I am installing it under the domain do I put the domain I am going to create or just wait and create it later?

Thank you

Is it going to be a domain controller or a server, if it's a domain controller on an existing domain, then join the existing domain as a regular PC and then run dcpromo to elevate it to domain controller on that domain, if it's creating a domain, that does not exist already, you can do it either way. To elevate or lower the status of a server to domain controller or back down to a normal PC, just go to "run" and type in dcpromo, so, to answer your question, it doesn't matter.
