    Hi,

    Can someone please explain the complete procedure in setting up a
    Windows 2000 installation from scratch including the order in which to
    install updates/patches etc.

    Obviously, I would install Win 2K first. What's the general consensus
    regarding the next steps?

    Do I then install AV and firewall and the connect to the net to install
    all updates or can I safely connect to the net and install the updates
    before then installing Av and firewall?

    Is there an online resource explaining the steps involved?

    Many thanks for your help,

    Rob.

    Just like any other windows-you need to install and configure a firewall
    before going online. I am using broadband so using windows update was
    the way to go for me.

    Offline (not connected to the internet)

    Windows 2000
    Hardware drivers (motherboard, video, sound)
    Any service pack's to hand
    Anti Virus
    Firewall
    Anti Spyware

    Some suggest a 'Ghost' image at this time is a good idea, up to you.

    Go Online (connect to the internet)

    Update Anti Virus
    Update Firewall if available
    Update Anti Spyware
    Microsoft Windows Update/patches

    Cheers
    Paul.

    If you are behind a router you can safely go to Windows Update to
    get patches without a software firewall installed.
