setting up a domain


I've got a computer running ubuntu, on a workgroup with a computers running windows xp pro, windows xp home, and one that'll run windows 2003, or solaris son, and possably a widnows 3.11 computer(if i can find the drivers for my outdated NIC, and TCP/IP protocol). I want to turn the workgroup into a domain with the ubuntu computer running as the server, but I have no clue on how to set it up. I've been searching on yahoo for tutorials, and can't find much. Can someone help me out?

ok, I've got bind set up but now how do I configure my router and NIC? I don't want the router to be the dhcp server, but if I set a static IP I lose network connection. What do I do now?

Odd... I would think setting a static IP would be the correct choice... you've got me stumped. Anyone have the answer to this?

You have no clue for anything. The only clue you've got is how to pick your nose. You shall be more ingenious when trying to build something.
You don't need a static ip for a domain master really , because you've got the Netbios Name Resolution, which sticks just about any IP to a machine name and that's just fair enough for the windows clients. To create the domain you will need samba(smbd) to start the CIFS services with any password backend configured.
For i am lazy typing anymore , just read that one :

Set security to user, because older version might not work otherwise. But still, the windows 3.11........... come on!

Not only were you a complete jackass to this poor guy, but your information has almost NOTHING to do with what he was looking for, not to mention poorly written. Keep your flaming to yourself. Not everyone knows how to do everything. The information you are giving him is a different configuration than what he's going for, and may not be desirable for him.

Grow up. Post reported.
