Just try out and see how long it takes for the Men in Black to come by your door..

As it's said already, call them, or send email. But if you plan to use english on this matter, you better learn to write better..

what a crappy unintuitive website DSL has, it took me a while to find a download link and when i did there were no mirrors anywhere, a few revisits and the mirrors suddenly appeared

anyway..

http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/damnsma.../dsl-3.0.1.iso that appears to be the one you want. Latest DSL, an ISO, sorted.

Also note, there's probably a lack fo response here since you admitted to stealing your connection. which is bad

The link i provided is a direct link to an iso on an ftp server, all you need to do is download it, if it still opens as a rar, that's because winrar by default (POS) treats .isos as archives, and can extract from them. So download from the link i gave, DO NOT open it in winrar, just burn it as an image.

Also in your search for a tutorial, it might be an idea to look for general apache - http://www.apache.org/ or lighttpd - http://www.lighttpd.net/ guides they are both webservers

well i dont have any info about sattelite connections but cant you call the your company not as a user but a person intrested in their satellite connection and ask them about that ... to be safe use a phonebooth (or what ever public calling thing is available where you are so their representatives dont keep on calling you afterwords etc)

apparently, damn small linux has monkeyweb installed per default instead of apache:
http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/index.php/DSLPanel

You could of course run apache from it. Install it with a packagemanager like debian apt.
Damn small linux has their own forums: http://damnsmalllinux.org/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.cgi
(Not that I want to scare you away but you might search for info over there ... )

Is your satelite link two way, or does your upload side go over a phone line? As I understand it, most satelite systems send out data over a phone line, then download from the satelite. If that is the case your website is going to be very slow, since it is going to be uploading files wehn someone accesses it.

When you get Damn Small installed and a netork connection working, go to the menu and select Enable Synaptic. It will download and install access to the Debian resources, which include Apache. Use Synaptic to install Apache. Or you can use Monkey.

Let us know when you get it working. Good luck.
