Chapter 7. Network Operating System Overview > Configuring a Server with an NOS

Configuring a Server with an NOS

Although we digressed for a moment to discuss network clients and how they communicate with the network server, we can now get back to our discussion of the NOS. Configuring a computer that will be a network server with a particular NOS is now easier than ever. Veteran network administrators love to recount the days when they were knee deep in NOS installation disks and had to wage a bare-knuckle battle at the command line to get a network server up and running.

As with all software now available, network operating systems ship on CD-ROMs (although the day when software ships on DVDs is not that far away, since a DVD can hold more than a CD). Nearly all of them provide straightforward installation programs, many of them GUIs, that walk you through the steps of configuring the NOS and the services that it will provide on the network.
