Setting up SharePoint - note to self

Setting up a new SharePoint installation today on a virtual machine, and I came across a couple of problems that will probably repeat themselves next time.

First off, I never set up a password for my Win Server 2008 account. This was later to cause problems with the subsequent SharePoint installation. In the end I uninstalled SharePoint, setup a password for the user, then started again.

Secondly, Network Discovery and File and Printer in Win Server 2008 sharing was off by default, meaning I couldn't browse to my SharePoint sites across the network. Switching these on resolved the issue.
