    Hi,

    I was able to acquire server 2012 through dreamsparks.com with my .edu email address. I have it installed but am overwhelmed on how to "make it work".

    I would like to start out by just setting up a file/app server and moving on from there. (Virtualization, home lab, etc.)

    I am a complete novice when it comes to Windows server OS, but would like to learn it as a hobby.

    If anyone knows of any "step-by-step" guides, it would be much appreciated.

    I would just poke around on technet and Google. If you want to find something specific try searching for 'proof of concept'.

    Dhcp proof of concept
    Hyperv proof of concept
    dfs proof of concept

    You can usually find some documentation about setting up a lab with this terms and that should help you out.
