That sounds like a great idea!

Anyone have a full guide on how to do it.

Esa193 and I are both interested

steal server 03,
install it,
run the basic wizard which will come up first of all, add a domain controller, then thats it.
after that its a case of setting up the restrictions, etc (dj chris time)
