Windows NT Server Installation (1st Pass)

I installed Windows NT Server!

Well, sort of.

The installation procedure itself was ridiculously simple; it really wasn't any more complicated than your average point-and-click installation of your average Windows application program. But there were a few places in the procedure that asked me questions that I didn't quite understand, which made it difficult to feel confident that I was giving sensible answers.

In one place, as I recall all too well, I was told that if I made the wrong choice, I would have to repeat the entire installation procedure. Luckily, that was the only instance that was quite that dramatic; everywhere else, the procedure indicated that I could change the setup at a later time if I decided that I was unhappy with my choice.

If you're interested in learning about setting up NT, you probably wish I would provide more detail about the experience -- and I will, but not tonight, because it's past my bedtime, and I'm getting punchy. Tomorrow, I'll review what I've done so far and figure out what I need to do next. And then I'll let you know what I've learned.

At this point, you're welcome to proceed to the next diary page,
or you can return to the WebFeats Webserver Setup Diary Home Page,
or you can go all the way back to the WebFeats Home Page.
