Rep: Reputation: 30 maybe you should save what you need, ofcourse man apache , man samba, & man lan might help. Samba has nothing to do with servers. Apache is a web server U need a mail server to.

I don't so much agree that Samba has nothing to do with servers. You have Samba file servers, and Samba clients. When integrating multiple OS's, Samba seems to be the way to go.

As for a mail server, look into Postfix,

Apache is very well documented on the apache homepage at

And the TLDP is a good place to look, but also check out and see about some dial up projects.

BTW, what is "man lan"? A LAN is a local area network, it's sort of an easy way to say connecting 2 or more computers in relative close proximity. So really, I don't think you'll find a man lan. However you may find a HOW-TO from tldp on networking. Also look into routing.
