  1. Install and configure Active Directory and then join the domain from each system. Documentation is available at Microsoft.
  2. One note that you will need windows xp professional, Vista Business or windows 7 business to connect to a domain. The home versions can't connect to domains.
  3. Do you want a domain or do you just want them on to be networked? What is the purpose of your server?

    For Windows Vista you need business, enterprise or ultimate.
    Windows 7 needs professional, enterprise or ultimate.

    Almost too many versions to keep track of now. Nice charts here though.
