Question: How do I know if I need a more robust server than the Personal Web Server?
Answer: You can always use the most powerful server available, but if you are offering e-commerce services or creating a public Web site, or if security is an issue, you want an industrial-strength server, such as Internet Information Server.
Question: Can I run a Web site from a basic desktop computer?
Answer: Yes. Personal Web Server was introduced in Windows 95. All you need is Personal Web Server, an IP address, an Internet service provider, and a registered URL with InterNIC. Contact your ISP for any specific instructions or restrictions.
Question: Do I need to have a Windows NT Server to create an intranet?

Question: Can I use data access pages in Access, too?
