Wacked out networkLocked
I am 25, straight off active duty with the Air Force with 3 1/2 years as a Windows 2000 network administrator. I was just recently was hired as the IT Director for a small business. My task is to bring them into the 21st Century IT wise. I currently have one server running Linux Red Hat. I have a total of 20 users I am responsible for. There are 4 windows 95 users, 4 Windows 98 users, 1 windows 2000 user, 2 XP home users, 4 XP pro users, and 6 terminals running off the main Linux server. The person that I took over for was fired due to all the problems occuring within the network, I wonder why? HAHA. All my experience is with Windows and the company is fine with moving to a Windows platform. I am researching buying all new Windows XP Pro machines from Dell along with 2 PowerEdge servers. Once I get the new servers and computers in place I now have the task of moving the users’ data off their old computers to their new computers. My dilema is whether to slave the old hard drives or transfer data via network connections. What is the quickest and most proficient way of accomplishing this task? Thanks everyone for your suggestions and for sharing your vast knowledge. I learn something new everyday.
