Q

How do we install extra drive space on our LAN?

We just migrated from Novell 3.0 to Windows 2000 Server. Our expenses are short, and we need more disk drive space on our LAN. We had some basic training on the daily "How To's" to run the LAN. One thing we do not know is how we install extra drive space on our LAN. Is it similar to adding extra drive space to an XP Pro machine? After we install the drives, we can figure out how to share the drives, etc.
Once you have physically installed a new drive into your 2000 server, launch Disk Manager and select "Re-scan disks". This will allow you to create new partitions and format the new disk as you need to.
