    Do you know, it's possible to configure Windows Server 2008 Std to use then like Home Server? At home, I already have DNS, etc. Does WHS require some special access rights amangement and logon to server? I think w08r2std should have all of it, but I never played with WHS to know it. Or I need to configure WHS and include it into domain?
    thanks!

    WHS can not join domain & also you do NOT login to it (as in normal sense)
    All is done via connector software on the client

    I would forget Server 2008 & go for 2008 R2
    But it will be nowhere the same as WHS in functionality (or at least not all done in same way from single web console)
