Hey,
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

Software
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

Software
Windows XP pro
VNC Viewer (Can control Server from here)
Frontpage 2000
Dreamweaver/Flash
+ 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.

Cheers
Stan
