    Hi Guys

    I've got another question, what do you guys recommend for a testing lab for MCSA study?

    I've got 1 PC and laptop thats suitable for XP and 2 PC's thats got just about the right spec for Server W2K3.

    How do you think i should proceed? 1 DC, DNS, DHCP etc server as my main server and then use the other one as a member server???

    Whats the norm? :blink

    Cheers Dudes 8)

    LOL that was ages ago simon! :oops: i was a total noob then! umm i think you should look into vmware or virtual pc - each has its advantages. Yes you will be able to use your pc's but with vmware (the one is use! :D) its so much easier to just delete a *pc* and reinstall it! When the time comes to practise routing in 291 you will need to get a few NICs and maybe a pc or two more with vmware its just your hard drive capacity limit - and HDD's are pretty cheap these days.

    Thanks for the help guys. I've thought about vmware or virtual pc but i think i will go with the actual machines, so that i can see the lab in all its glory (if u know what i mean :D ).

    I'm gonna build the lab and buy all the books i need over a few months, cause i'm going to chill out and take a break from certs for a bit and enjoy the sun and world cup :biggrin.

    Anyway dudes laters 8)
