2. When the opening screen appears, select Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services.

3. On the screen that appears, click the Windows SharePoint Services Configuration Wizard.

4. On the Welcome page of the wizard, click Next.

When the SharePoint Configuration Wizard completes successfully, you see a page similar to the one shown in Figure 18-24. In the next section, when you're installing Project Server, you'll need the URL information for both Items 1 and 2 on this screen, so write them down or take a screen shot of this page. After collecting this information, click Finish.
