Upgrading from Windows 95 I see!

Well done.

There are a couple of things you need to do to allow this, I cant remember of hand and my documentation is in work, but if you search for ti there is a manual from microsoft and a guide from an apple forum about. Hope this helps.

Are you adding it to the domain or just for use of internet, Network shares and all that jazz?

That seems ok, But there is a way to add them to the domain which is in a mac guide somewhere, I'll try find it now, you have to physically enter the values for ip, dns, domain etc if i remeber correctly

Thats not the one i meant but it does give some info in there. I know its for sbs though but the services and settings you need to adjust should be relevant. I could check if you dont have access to a 2003 box

Thanks mate, I have the guide somewhere in work its like 40 pages or something, I printed it out but i'll look in work tomorrow for you, it is for a sbs2003 server but im sure the principle should be the same, I have only ever had to connect it to a sbs2003 domain controller, whether this makes a difference i dont know without looking

May help a little more, I had them connected but i found it a bit of a pain really, in the end i think there we just allowed to get ip addresses and shares in the end. As login scripts printers etc were a real pain to get working with the equipment i had.

Best of luck, and i hate Macs!
