Welcome to LQ!

You should have no problems with Fedora Core 5 on that machine.

To dual boot with Windows, the easiest way (IMO) is to reinstall windows, leaving part of your hard drive as unpartitioned free space. Then install Fedora. As part of the Fedora install, you will need to create two partitions in the free space you left. One should be swap, which in your case should be about 1GB. The rest should be root (/). If you want, create a /home partition, which is where all your documents, etc go. This makes it easier to reinstall if necessary (you don't lose your data). Fedora will automatically detect Windows, and install a boot loader to the MBR which will allow you to select either Windows or Linux when you boot your computer.

Other than that, we need more information. What sort of server do you want to run?

I hope this helps

Hi IBall

i want to set up a hosting to run as a small business from home,

to install Cpanel here is the spic of the information

266 MHz Processor or better (more processing power is recommended)
64MB of RAM (1+ GB recommended when hosting many accounts)
10GB-2TB disk space (more disk space is necessary to host more domains)

once again here is my mechine

Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz
3.21 GHz, 512 MB of RAM
Western Digital 80 GB Harddrive. 7200 RPM.

The following partition scheme is recommended:



NOTE: Different partition schemes are suitable for different types of hosting. Some servers may require space to be allocated in different ways than others. This recommended scheme is an attempt to provide enough space for many different types of hosting but it is no substitution for real world experience. This partition scheme may need to be varied to suit the needs of your specific setup.



/boot 35 Megabytes (Mb)

/usr 4096+ Mb (If you have a 60 gig drive try 6144 for /usr, 8192 if you have an 80 gig drive, etc.)

/var 1500+ Mb

/tmp 512+ Mb

/ 1024 Mb

/home grow to fill disk

swap 2x memory size



NOTE: The "/tmp" directory is a special directory that is required to be writeable by all users and processes on the system. In general, directories that are writable by all users and processes are cause for security concern, however this directory is a special case. To minimize any security impact as a result of having an unsecured "/tmp" directory, it is recommended that "/tmp" be mounted on a seperate partition in order to take advantage of the "no exec" option available under both Linux and FreeBSD. If a separate mount point exists for "/tmp", then the installer will verify and potentially remount the partition with the "no exec" option. Additionally, the installer will ensure that the sticky bit is set on the directory and that the other permissions are correct. If "/tmp" is not mounted on a separate partition, the installer will create a file system disk image of 512 Mb and mount "/tmp" on the newly created disk image with the "no exec" directive. Under most circumstances, 512 Mb is sufficient for the "/tmp" partition; however, your system may require additional space. It is therefore recommended that you include a separate partition for the "/tmp" mount point (sized according to your size specification) prior to installing cPanel.





Minimum CPU/RAM/HD:

P266

256 Meg of ram

4 Gig of space

Yeah, thanks for not asking a question but sure, your CPU is higher than 266MHz, you have more than 512MB RAM and you have more than 10GB disk space so you make the requirements. If you're hosting other peoples data you better have an extremely good and secure way of backing up their data, have you got that end of things sorted yet?

So what are you trying to achieve?

If you want to run some sort of server, you really need a dedicated computer - dual boot just won't do.

Partitioning schemes really depend on exactly what you want to run.
