  1. Hello Jerry,
    Is there any step-by-step office project server 2007 installation guide with sharepoint server 2007? I am very new to microsoft office in terms of installing and administrating them. Also, I would like to understand how sharepoint server interacts with office project server in terms of managing submitted projects. What will be the team web site after the sharepoint is installed. If you have some tutorials for it, please let me know.
    Also, your training material, Creating Project in Project Server 2007, can not be played in my windows player. The error is "error downloading codec". I can only hear your voice but no video is displayed. Any paper training materials would be great.

  2. Sorry. Forgot to add this question in the my previous thread.
    After sharepoint is installed, how do I verify that it is actually working? Where is the team web site in URL?
