Use Mac OS-X then. I don't have a clue about Fedora,
but Slackware Linux has Apache installed by default.

In Mandrake, there's Apache too, so probably in Fedora also. The main pages are in /var/www/html if I remember correctly. And what you describe works exactly the same. It just has to be enabled.

/var/www/html is the place for root, so i think it's not that. my school one is like every user can have their own website. so the public_html folder put in the home folder, that's will be it.
and how to enable it?security level?i checked that http already. server configuration?i dont see apache there...just many service that i don know about ><

Apache is the "httpd" service. As for this particular configuration (to enable ~/public_html), I don't know it (never used it), but it should be somewhere in Apache's config. Go to Apache config dir as root (under /etc), and do that:
Code:
# grep -ril "public_html" config/
Sorry if my instructions are not accurate; I don't have Linux at hand now.

Yves.

apache is not installed by default, but it''s quite easy to install it in fedora3 anyway. after i installed it, i can put the website as you say: /var/www/html.
however, i cannot find that apache directory, it's not under etc. and only root can put a website, is it anyway i can let user put their website too??

You need these lines in httpd.conf
Code:
<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
    UserDir public_html
</IfModule>
you may find it useful to set some options for /home/*/public_html for example
Code:
<Directory /home/*/public_html>
    Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +Includes
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>
