    if I want to install a domain controller, is it a separate product I have to buy or is it included by default in like win2003 server? Win2k server? So if I buy win2003 server or win2k server does it automatically come with the option to create a domain controller(pdc)..and whats with this active directory…I don’t need that to create domains do i?

    Yes, you can create a domain controller with 2003 Server.

    Install Windows 2000/2003 server. Run dcpromo.exe. At least in Win2000 Server, it will install the DNS server service which is required to install Active Directory which is required to be a domain controller. You tell it that this is the 1st server on your network and then create a domain name. Presto! You're a domain controller. PDC/BDC died with NT4. They're all just DC's now.
