Where can I find information on setting up a Win2k lab environment to study for MCSE?

Hi Tony Northup. I'd like to set up a Win2k Server as a domain controller, two members servers and some Win2k Professional desktops at home to practice for my MCSE and pass the test. Can you tell me where I can find the material that tells me to do these things?
Most MSCE training books include step-by-step instructions for building such a lab environment. The actual install of the software is very straightforward -- it should be as simple as inserting the CDs into your computers and rebooting. You should be prompted to boot from the CD. If you do this, setup will launch automatically. The wizard will walk you through the actual install process. Once the operating systems have been installed, you can rely on the help files included with each OS. Good luck!
