    I have a Server 2003 Enterprise server w/2 1 GIG nics.
    I'm buying 2 24 port 1 GIG managed switches.
    My firewall/router is a Sonicwall Pro 200.

    What is the best configuration for this scenario?

    Thanks very much.

    There are several good answers to that question depending on many
    factors: number and type of users, vpn requirements, segmentation needs,
    internet usage, intranet usage to name a few.

    I would connect one NIC in the server to each switch, and also connect
    one LAN port from the firewall/router to each switch.

    Make sure that either the router or the Server 2003 (but not both) is
    configured as a DHCP server.

    Good luck
