Thanks all. I finally install the server in workgroup, an in few months I will add a second server and change for a domain, I make a discovery ( at least for me); XP home work stations can access server files even if it's not join to the domain..... is there fun when it's too simple ?

No it's not another computer, it's a server, as I discover servers have no 10 limitations, they are limit by the CALs. but.........

MS with 2008 don't check or validate the CALs, so the server work fine with 5 CALs and 15 clients on it, againts the licence but it work fine. I was very much surprise. But anayway, cost me only $ 260 and I'm 100% ok.
