I knew someone would point out the obvious here (sorry if that sounds rude, I'm not trying to be), but as stated above in post #1 I came across a lot of MS software for a great price and Server 2008 was included so I just want to try it out, mainly for learning purposes on my behalf.

One can never have too much knowledge, and servers/networking has always been a tough spot for me so I'd like a little hands on training since that's the best way I learn.

Besides, if I can work out the little bugs here and there it might just take the place of Vista as my main OS. Seems faster.

Thanks guys so much for the help so far!!

I installed server 2008 on my main file server yesterday. Main plus points are as follows.

Self-Healing NTFS
SMB2 Network File System
IIS7 / Modules opposed to monolithic core

Not so good parts.

Installing Nvidia SATA drivers deactivates it. (Really, really lame).
