Load the Server with your chosen OS, then load the 5 workstations with their OS.

If you are using a Windows Server Application you need the Professional version of XP or the Professional Version or Higher for Vista/7 as the lower versions can not be connected to a domain.

Then place your Server where you want it connect with a Ethernet Cable from the Server to the Switch, then after placing your workstations where you want them run Ethernet Cables from the Switch to the workstations.

Then follow the steps as outlined in the Server Application/OS to set it up with the functions that you require.

As for the steps that you need to setup the Server and establish it???s functions this is dependant on the Server Version and if we don???t know what that is or for that matter what OS you want to use on the workstations we can not give step by step instructions.

If you want the server to distribute a Internet Connection you need 2 Network Interfaces in it and connect the unused one to the Internet and then setup the Network by telling the Setup Procedure that the Server connects directly to the Internet and all Computers on the LAN connect through it.
