It's not recommend that installed SharePoint on domain controller or
need special procedures.

SharePoint is not
recommend on domain controller or otherwise has a special procedures.

OK since we are on the topic if I am running Sharepoint 2003 along the Portal
2003/WSS is it as east as inserting the 2007 Sharepoint cd and installing or
upgrading? In a perfect world this would be great? Or am I in more trouble then
I think.

My opinion...

Pretty much stick in the cd and go IF you have all the pre-requisites
completed. It will check for them, so be prepared to make sure the
machine is ready for sharepoint.

For a relatively small site, there is no question that upgrading is
easiest. I had absolutely no problems with smaller farms of only few GB.
The caveats are - it was quite slow in my opinion; custom web parts
don't migrate; frontpage modified pages will retain old look unless you
use Look&Feel to wipe out the FP mods AFTER upgrade. If you are
worried about problems, you can move the sites to a new server, upgrade
it, if all is well then kill the old site (not allowing any updates
during the upgrade of course)

Gigantic farms with hundreds/thousands of workspaces - install 2007
separately on the machine and go through the process of migrating.
CAREFULLY following recommended procedures, order of migration, dns
settings etc

Thanks for quick responce but according to the deployment duide
2007 the server requires changes to run .... here is the comment from guide.

In "Deployment for Office SharePoint Server 2007" doc there is comment in
page 33 stating that --"We recommend that you read the Known Issues/Readme
documentation before you install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a domain
controller. Installing Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a domain controller
requires additional
configuration steps that are not discussed in this document." but I am unable
to get the proper changes.

finally I have separated Domain controller and sharepoint server and
install standalone installation. It works !!!

1. I have created WEB application. and hosted a site under this application.

2. Then I have created HTTPS (using SSL) Web Application and hosted a site but
It is not working. As I am using Standalone installation  hence I have Only ONE
Sharepoint server. I want to access the HTTPS site from intranet.
