Currently I'm looking to start my own web server as to be able to host my own site and maybe some friends sites also. I've purchased SuSE 7.2 Professional and read the books, yet I'm still confused. What RPM's should I install, other than what Linux requires to run, to get the server running and ready for me to set up? Please keep in mind that I'm nearly a total newbie (I've managed to install SuSE if that counts as knowledge). I also prefer to be able to use GUI's until I get used to the shell but if that's not possible then that's ok.
Last on my list I also want to add a dial in account so that I can log onto my box when not at home and still be able to work on it. Any references/tutorials on how to make a dial-in account and what RPM's I need for that would also be a great help.
Thanks in advance,
