Extending Network

By GJ2008 ·
I will be installing a new Windows 2000 server on a separate domain to the existing one on the network and am not sure how the IP address range will work. Our existing IP range is -, the majority of which is being used. Will I needto extend the range for the new server and the computers connecting to it? If so, how do I go about this. Please could you point me in the right direction.

try to google topics such as ip addressing and subnetting as this will provide you with some details on how-to-network. hth....
