Default best way to add a file server to sbs


I'm currently installing windows 2000 server on a box to which I'll add to
the sbs network. I am curious to what I should do, and if there are any
known problems with adding a windows 2000 server to an existing SBS network.
I've had many problems before with SBS and it's working perfect now. I don't
want to mess things up again. LOL.

Here's what I want to do. I want to basically have this "new" box setup to
browse the network and vice versa, and I want to use it to store files and
was wondering if I could run applications off it?

Should I install Windows 2000 server, Xp Pro, Mandrake, Red Hat? Which is
the best and easiest to use as basically a file server?

Any help and/or an order to setting it up w/ SBS would be very helpful and
appreciated.

Thanks,
Jm

if you want an app server then 2000 server is your choice, just make sure
you point DNS to the SBS box.

I have my DNS pointed to my internal address table. The same DNS that the
rest of the client pc's are on. Assuming that's what you mean.

Thanks for your reply :-)
