Hi ya'll - here's what I'm thinking right now...
 
Thinking I might learn something over here on LQ.

I've got Fedora9 on an old 386 box right now - Hosting 4 domains with apache. It's so old, I want to make this into a file share/file backup host, and move the web content to another host.

Want to develop some more robust content on these 4 sites.

Have a win2000 box - thinking about installing some flavor of Linux - maybe F11 and make this the primary web-hosting box... Only issue right now is that the CD-ROM is not working - won't open - may need to figure our a net-based install.

Few other things I want to do:

1. Samba (or something like it) - to share files out to few other computers (maybe from a couple of FreeAgent drives)

2. install F11 on an old winME box (while preserving and being able to access the files on it's current harddrive)

3. Some kind of blogging software for Fedora (so I can host a blog site)

4. Share out a printer on F9

5. Keep learning

6. Make a contribution

7. Some kind of backup/recover strategy/process

8. probably a few other thoughts...


All the best to folks on LQ.org

Thanks, and a quick question
 
Thanks, Sasha.

BTW, does anyone know a quick way to view contents of documentation directories in a browser, say from here:

Well, in Firefox, I just select FILE-->OPEN LOCATION and go from there. The browser acts like a file-browser basically.

Is this what you mean?

viewing doc files remotely in a browser
 
Hi Sasha,

Thanks for your reply. Your suggestion would definitely give the results. You said:

But, thing is, I'm on another (windowsXP) machine in my local network here, and not sure that would work from the browser here. I should have mentioned that.

I have an apache server running on the f9 box. So this gives me the default page when I enter it in the browser here at the winxp box:

What I was hoping to do is something like this on the winxp browser:

Might could code up some html into the default page that would retrieve the doc from the local file system, but I was hoping to find a way to easily access the documentation (.pdf and html format) from the winxp box.

Another approach I'm taking is to ftp the docs from the f9 box to the winxp box and read them from there. (When I get samba set up, other easier solutions my pop out from there. ;)

Thanks and Regards,
