Can anyone out there suggest a good computer network for a small EMS company. Basically I don't need it to be a huge setup ,just something basic that can handle all of my inter-office mail, company e-mail accounts and website setup. I also need this network to be able to handle all of the everyday activities of the business.

Eric,

You can connect NT systems together with little problem, using ethernet network cards with twisted pair cables and a hub. The only expense is the NT operating systems. NT also has a personal web server, so you can have your own Intranet. For your email and website, you may want to pay $20/month and go with a web hosting service.

Also Linux is free with apache web server which is also free, and I hear they have gone leaps from the older difficult installations. Windows machines should be able to hook into them via ethernet and hub also.

Hope that gives you a general idea, Cliff
