Default Server Questions

When I make a server I know that I have to make one hardrive for the OS and the rest for the storage but then I wanted to know how to you get your workstations to get that log in screen and anyone can logg on with there username and password from any workstations.

This is done by creating an active directory domain. This is fairly complicated to setup however.

The guy that taught me how to create a server told me to split tthe server into partitions.

9GB for OS
and then separate the rest of space for Games, storage, etc.

ISOwner posted a tutorial.

160GB Hard Drive, unless you want to backup an entire partition theirs really no reason to separate it. I'd give at least 20GB to a basic domain controller (no web server, no WSUS, etc) if you did partition it however.
