linux server help!


ok my comp is a dual athlon MP 1900+ and i am going to build a linux server but am going to use only a single athlon xp1900 the setup is below

AMD XP 1900+
512MB ram
Abit KG7 motherboard
30GB IBM HDD
80Gb IBM HDD (for backup and FTP storage!)
Diamon 16mb graphics card
Linksys Network card 10/100mbs

ok i wont be actually on this comp but instead using Exceed to log into and control in that way !

first question is this ok or can anyone see any probs or suggest anything!

second i want to get a tape backup to backup everything or can anyone suggest anything better ?? (cheaper aswell and not cd's as it is very tedious change the cd, as i have 8 gigs worth of mp3 (which is forever growing) and loads of software, and let alone all my uni work!)

also is exceed free ?? ive not really usied it only at uni ??

YES I AM a student but i know, if you want to learn you must teach yourself thats why i buy all this stuff to teach my self this is the best way, ave up buy the hardware and LEARN!!!!! (i mean i spent a forune to have a dual system and that was worth it ! experiance and all!)

thanks !!!

This is a very powerfull machine for a server, but the question is what kind of server(s) do you want to run on this machine - web server, mail server, ftp server, print server, file server, etc.
And I have no clue what is exceed, if you want secure and flexible control of your remote machine use SSH (secure shell) from Open SSH http://openssh.org (it is a free solution)

I don't know anything about Exceed, but I REALLY like OpenSSH. If you haven't decided on a distro yet, I'd recommend Slackware 8.0. OpenSSH comes with Slack 8.0, so just select that package when installing the networking components, and you are good to go. To control this server from another Linux box, type
ssh -l <username> <hostname>
(assuming OpenSSH is installed on both machines).

If you are connecting from a Window$ machine, download PuTTY (it's free, and is quite a good program) from the OpenSSH web site. There are other clients available on the OpenSSH web site for other platforms, as well.

Installing X on a machine designated as a server is pretty silly.

I used to love it when people would complain that their Windows fileserver was running slowly. I'd go into the server room and see the server in question merrily showing that OpenGL "pipes" screensaver

Not necessarilly. I originally built a Linux server to run Oracle 8i, and it wouldn't install without x. So I installed x. I still haven't installed Oracle, though...

you won't be able to do much playing with remote x, so you'll be better off installing ssh and maintain your server services through command line. For backup you may want to consider dvdr.
Tape is slow + really slow so it won't be much help to you

It will, it merely needs the X client libraries installed. X inself does not need to be running on the box.

Oracle on Linux is a bit of a pig to install. I have a working method, though, for both 9i and 9i release 2. If you'd like a few tips, let me know.
