    Its all working now, just took about a week ironing out glitches.
    wouldn't have having hp laserjets actually made that side of things easier, what with the UPD ?

    Should I go with w2k8 instead of my tried and tested w2k3. Will it give me any advantages for my non-AD setup.? All will it give me headaches?

    in most areas w2k8 won't add anything revolutionary for basic things like dhcp, dns and print.

    the improvements made in the areas of DFS and Quota management which come under the file services banner could be significant enough to make the difference should you choose to use them later on.
