Question Class project, setting up network using Fedora for small startup company.

Hello, I have been given a class project and being new to Fedora and Linux I have come to the experts for advice. Instructor has given OK to use all online resources so here goes. My project is to specify how Red Hat Fedora can be used instead of MicroSoft for a small start-up company. Need to use Fedora to setup corporate WEB and Network access for about 50 employees. All employees need to be able to share (use Samba?) memos, spreadsheets and documents, employee terminals will need to have word processing, spreadsheets along with network access. Due to security reasons, not all terminals will have CD-Rom so need to know how terminals could be setup without using CD-Roms to install Fedora. If this is possible, how could it be done? Could someone please supply me with a brief outline of what is required and any other information that they might think would be of assistance. I would love to be able to prove that this can be done without using any Micorsoft OS.

Thank you

I'm supprised more people haven't jumped at this by now.

"use Fedora to setup corporate WEB and Network access for about 50 employees."

does this mean being able to surf the web or provide webbased information to the employees?

1: setup network connectivity using linux
2: Web serving using Apache
3: Web Browsing
4: Share Documents |
5: word processing office suit
6: DNS
7: Install fedora over network
8: You may want to look at
A: Network Managment -
B: Email server
C: Samba Printing

Of course there is more but I'm sure I won't be the only one to post on this.
