a tutorial needed


hopefully i about 3 weeks i will have an adsl connection
i have 2 machines a dell p3 550 with 192 mb of ram and a hand built p4 2.2 with a gig of rambus
id like to run a server (ftp) and firewall on the p3 using mandrake which seems to be the easiest for begineers
id dual boot the p4 with mandrake and xp
i need xp for the graphic application im trying to learn
and mandrake to learn linux
id like to have the p4 go through the linux machine which would act as my firewall
and id use the p4 to learn linux
if any have seen a step by step of relativly easy tutorial on how to set up something like this ,a point in the right direction would be appreciated
also does mandrake require certain adsl modems and network cards as ill be suppling my own
would i be better with a static ip
and finally why the crititism of usb,is it not supported in linux ,as its much faster than firewire in revision 2

am i jumping in too deep for a first timer?
is it possible to control the p3 running the server in win xp on the p4 as the p3 will be just a box on its own ,rather than having to reboot into mandrake to do it


im beggining to realise how many different things ill have to try and master to get this set up,but im not in a rush.

Umm firewire isn't used for ADSL modems, USB is hard to configure even on windows.

For FTP server, just grab the ProFTPd rpms (proftpd 1.2.6rc-2, proftpd-standalone 1.2.6rc-2) install em, run /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start then put files for ftp server in /var/ftp

BTW ProFTPd RPMs are:

ftp://ftp.proftpd.org/distrib/packag...rc2-1.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.proftpd.org/distrib/packag...rc2-1.i386.rpm

Also static IP isn't needed, but its good to have for a few reasons...


USB IS supported in Linux, just USB is **VERY** hard to configure

For controlling a Linux box from another box that uses Windows (or linux) you need PuTTY (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/) and OpenSSH (http://www.openssh.com)

And to load RPMs, on each pack of RPMs u load do this:

mkdir <foldername u can choose>
cd <foldername u chose>

Then put the RPMs in that dir

then

rpm -Uvh *
