I'm an experienced single-player gamer. I've played very, very little
on the internet. My father and I have Call Of Duty (both patched to
multiplayer version 1.5) and I'd like to play with him in a cooperative
fashion. I've tried to set it up but don't get it. I assume I'm
supposed to start a server? When I do that, the game screen goes away
and is replaced by some sort of console panel. If I restart the
multiplayer game, I don't see my named server in the list, and neither
does my father. Clue me in?

Also, what would be the easiest 2 player cooperative mode to play in?
My father is less experienced and we just want to get this thing up and
running as easily as possible. Thanks much.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe COD has a
cooperative mode. You either play the single player missions by yourself
against the game's AI, or you can play multiplayer deathmatch. It could be
TEAM deathmatch (TDM), or Free-For-All (FFA). As far as I know, there is no
way for you and him to fight against the computer AI as in single player
mode.

Correct.

The easiest would be to go onto a public server and play on the same team.
