Can you please confirm the following:

Win2003 AD environment. I have (1) server will be the OfflineRootCAServer in
lab. I have Win2003 SP1, a member server of mydomain.com.I will install the
'Certificate Services' via control Panel Add/Remove programs.

Can you please confirm whether the 'CAPolicy.inf' file &  parameters is what
I should be editing in order to specify that this will be my 'offline root
CA'?
If I am going to the wrong direction, I appreciate if you can give me a hint
on how to get the offline root CA configured.
