    My God, My God....why do you not speak coherently?!
    If you are going to use a laptop 19 hours a day, make sure it's plugged in
    the AC.....there aren't any batteries out there that will last more than 4
    hours....

    You can put anything on a laptop you'd put on a desktop....just make sure
    you have sufficient hardware and drivers. Also if you are going to use W2K3,
    make sure you get specific W2K3 drivers. Short of you finding W2K3 specific
    drivers, you can get away with XP drivers (Windows 2K3 and XP use the same
    kernel).

    uh, yeah, running WinServer2003 and Exchange on a laptop sounds like a
    great idea. 'k, VMs and more RAM for the learning processes.

  5. Come on CG101, get off amiteshwar01's back about their english. This is a
    newsgroup serving people the world over. Leave the insults at home in your
    basement.

    Amiteshwar01,

    If all you are trying to do is setup a lab to learn more about Win2k3 and
    Exch2k3 then you will be fine. A little more RAM is always better.
    However, what you need is something like "VMWare" by EMC or "Virtual PC" by
    Microsoft. With ether of them you will be able to setup "Virtual" servers.
    One as a Domain Controller, One as an Exchange server, and one "Virtual"
    system as an XP Pro workstation. You can even setup a Windows 2003/Exchange
    2003 Cluster if you have the Enterprise versions of Windows 2003 and
    Exchange 2003. And yes, your can do it all on a "nice sized" laptop.

    Hope that helps,


    Clayton

    First of all I live in a second floor apartment...if you're outside the US,
    it'd be called a flat...I have no access to a basement. Second, How did I
    insult him? I could hardly understand him for one, and number two a
    "hardcore computer freak" would have known the answer to his question. I did
    humor the question nonetheless and don't think I was any meaner than others
    who would have answered. If you go back to my original post you will see I
    didn't go into his english anymore than my first sentence.

    For what it's worth....he should go with your advice. VMWare on a laptop
    would go well for him....however he should still get more RAM nonetheless.

  7. CG101,

    I have no problem with the humor in Amiteshwar01's statement that he is a
    "hardcore computer freak" asking a question like that. However, we all
    thought we were more then we really were when we first got started.

    I just don't think there is a place for making fun of someone's language
    skills in the newsgroups (are anywhere for that matter). Especially in what
    is otherwise an international forum.

    It's not worth much, but that's my 2 cents,


    Clayton
