install slackware server


Hi slackers!

I'm responsible for about... 12 pc, two with ub****u and the others with w****ws, in school.
for me i use slackware 12 but for teachers and students who don't understand much and are used to work with w*****s i've to install those SO.

But... i have a server and i would like to install Slackware, something like... Active directory: distribute ip, restrict programs and webpages, etc.
The deal is, i don't know wich packages/programs to install.
Is there any slackware site or free ebook which i can read to implement it?

Thx a lot

Just do the full installation of Slackware, then. It installs everything.

I would advise against this. Simply because you're going to install plenty of things that you're never going to use or run and I'm sure that for a server, you would like to rather spend it on either logs, databases or pages.

A quick search in the Slackware forum will give you a general idea of the minimal packages that you need to run a server. I'm using Slackware for a server now which runs great.
