    When we are setting up SharePoint Server.
    We have two options:
    Setup as Farm
    Setup as Standalone

    What are the real differences and impact on it will have?

    So it should be. This is NOT a SP 2010 forum. (Look at the title of the forum which clearly says "pre-SharePoint 2010".




    Note: I have deleted the off-topic post from Ankit Nigam which was about SP 2010 installation and therefore off-topic here. He also proposed his own post as answer which is very bad forum behaviour.
