    First question I would ask is why run Server 2003 for just one computer on a network? It would be a lot easier to just create a workgroup with two pc's. Second, it the XP loaded on the laptop at least Professional? It seems that the user asking the question has absolutely no networking experience or server experience, since he needs to ask what is AD. (AD is active directory.) Before he starts on this endeavor, I believe the user here should get himself a good book on Server 2003 and read it prior to embarking. In that task. He should learn about AD, DCPROMO, and everything else he would need to get started. Beyond this, I do not think this is the time or place to teach him the knowlege he needs to start on becoming a network admin.
