Hewlett Packard is the first U.S. company to offer custom hardware running Windows Home Server. Here's what you get.
After you connect the MediaSmart server to the network and power it up, you connect to it for the first time by installing the connector software on a client PC, which kicks off this initial setup wizard.
To perform administrative tasks, you fire up the Home Server console and enter the administrator password, which is defined in this dialog box as part of the initial setup.
To make setup and administration easier, HP's developers added a custom tab to the standard Home Server console. The text at the bottom of this dialog box appears only during initial setup and walks you through the process of configuring the most common server options.
