    What you need to do after you have installed a Windows server would depend on how you are going to use it. Is it going to be the first server in a domain? Is going to be a member server in a domain? Will it be a standalone server? Will it be used as a print server, a file server, an application server, a web server, or any of the other roles a server may play. Perhaps it will fill a number of roles. As you can see, you will not get a valid answer unless your question is more defined. While many answers for each of the roles will be similar, they all differ in some ways.

    thanks for your help guys, well steve, I would like to setup a first server in a domain. I've configured AD and dns, now what next? what i wanna do is, I have 20 pcs to be connected to the network so i can manage those user accounts, hence this server will be a used as DHCP & Mail server, is it possible?

    this is definitely possible to use as a DHCP and mail server. But according to me you have to install exchange as well for making a mail server.

    i have to say if you want to have DCHP and mail server on teh same server, the specs of the server must be a lot higher as exchange takes quite a lot of resources. not only that, do you need to switch the IP's of your pc's using DCHP every 8 days or etc?
