    I'll help you, but I'm not exactly sure what you want.

    You want to have an xServe (running Mac OS X Server) to be networked with the other computers? Maybe capable of storing time machine backups and personal files?

    I have a Mac Pro, which is Os X Server and have an X Serve too.

    All I'm looking for is, how to get them installed(connected) and run them.

    As mentioned, am looking forward to create a work group with 5 imacs and 3 macbooks. i.e., am trying to create a network in between those workstations.

    How to install Mac OS X Server in X Serve.

    How to actually work XServe?

    How can I make X Serve and OS X Server as back-up's. (In here, I meant, maintaining a same storage within the workgroup which acts as back up)!!

    Why don't you read the documentation? You are hired to do a job you are not qualified to do?

    Do you even have an xServe? If you do, you would know OSX server is already installed.

    "How to actually work xServe":
    Connect power cord
    Connect key board / mouse
    Connect monitor
    Press Power button, turn on monitor

    How old are you? Please write in complete sentences.
