    Hello all,

    I'm looking for advice from those with Linux server experience..

    WeI have a PowerEdge 1400SE server with a P3 1.4 Ghz chip and 1 gb of
    ram. I'm experienced with Windows networking and IIS but only a little
    with Linux. I'd like to really jump in to Linux now.

    I'd like to set up this server using Linux so that 10 users on a
    Windows workgroup network can do two things:

    1. Share files on a network share on the server

    2. Access the server as an internal web server where the users can
    test web sites they are developing. I know we need Apache and MySql
    becasue that's where the production sites run on.

    This is for an internal work/test arera - the websites will never be
    on the internet.

    Any advice on what direction I should be looking at or what flavor of
    Linux should I be researching?

    Thank you in advance for your thoughts!

    Doesn't really matter a hell of a lot. Most any major distro should do
    what you need. I'll refer you to I currently do that sort
    of thing on our home computers - I use (K)ubuntu, Elive and Gentoo. IMHO
    ubuntu is fairly quick and easy to set up.
