hey all! it is then end of the highschool year and in my computer engineering class we were working thru the course.. my teacher figured I knew enough about windows and told me to set up a server using the mandrake 7.2 distro I gave him. I have never even used NT let alone Linux for a server. where can I start?
I installed the "server" option, and turned on most of the services that a workstation would have.. now the thing is
I have to serve a web page off of it (I think), people have to log in with their microsoft computers (using the domain and username and pass) for files, and I would also like to run a half-life server on it if I got around to it!
I have absolutally no clue how to connect to it from windows.. I chose a hostname that is way too long and I cant figure out how to change it. I am under the influence that if I set everyone up on the computer, they can put my hostname in their domain and their user name and pass for my linux box and log in like that? I dont know.. do I have to use samba for that? as far as the half-life server goes, I think that will be just install and dont worry..
what all do I need running / going on to serve a small (20 comp) LAN that isnt connected to the internet?
