i have redhat linux 9
i am not sure what kind of server i want....i want to store music....share files.....make databases...
i have 2 linux machines,1 windows machine(xp), and 2 apple macintosh running os x panther
you'll need at least samba so you can share with the windows machines, and nfs and ftp would be nice to have also. nfs lets you mount filesystems on the server on your local machine/s (where both server and client are linux). not sure what you need for the macs. for a distro i'd recommend slackware.
It's really good for setting up and maintaining a server. (FTP,NFS,samba,or whatever)
Also if your not too far along with the setup you my want to consider Clarkconnect Home.
It does not have a GUI but have a web based configuration. That is what my server here at home is running. It is a small distro based on redhat (I think it's around 500 meg totally installed.
I have it running and FTP, samba, and game server (Q3/UrT) Just select stand alone during installation. ( it can also be set up as a router)
