This article describes the procedure for installing Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Evaluation Edition, included with the Microsoft TCP/IP Training kit.

NOTE: These steps assume that you are using two computers on a LAN. If other computers are present on the LAN as well, these steps may need to be modified to avoid network conflicts. Your system may also require additional steps to configure your network card or other hardware.
Create the Windows NT Server Setup Disks
These steps will create three Windows NT Server setup disks that you will then use to install Windows NT Server to your system.
NOTE: It is possible to run Setup directly from the Windows NT Server CD-ROM without first creating the setup disks. However, this could cause your system to become unusable if the Windows NT Server installation process is interrupted. Microsoft Press recommends that you do not run Setup directly from the CD-ROM.
