I'm trying to find information on setting up an intranet at home. I've found some material, but its all out dated. This is what systems I have:

Server - (Originally to be a gameserver. Can be thrashed if suggested!;\ )
Amd k6 500
192 Sdram
4 gig HD
56k Conectant modem
NE2000 network card

Windows 2000 pro
VNC Services (desktop helpdesk software)
W/t Shared Internet
Internet Information Services installed (Win2k Ver)

Client (My main computer)
Amd Ath850
256 ddr
15 gig
Intel 10/100 netcard

Windows XP pro
VNC Viewer (Can control Server from here)
Frontpage 2000
+ graphics editing programs

I'm looking for configuring guides for IIS or any other programs anyone can suggest.

Thanks for any help.

Microsoft produce some quite helpful "How To" Guides. Have a look at their site and see if you can find something relevant.

I set up a trial server and client last year using a couple of the guides and they were quite logical.

You'll might consider a couple suggestion.

Change VNC to TightVNC (much better product and its still free) http://www.tightvnc.com/

Consider using Linux as an intranet server

A great content manager that I've just recently found is postNuke. It's free and can be found at http://www.postnuke.com. All I can say about postNuke is it's about one of the best CM software I've seen which could easily cost $10,000 if some commercial company were to sell it. You'll need PHP and mySQL. I've been testing it for a week now and it so bloody easy to configure. There are a couple of things to watch out for if you're installing postNuke on IIS. Ask on this forum if you need the info and I'll send the info to you.
