Hi ...

I know all these questions have probably been asked to death but here we go again :

atm my pc is running the following win98se , win 2000 server, win XP pro and RH9.0.. I used to ahve 7.2 but lost my installation disks somewhere and with 9 it looks good and all that but I cannot for the life of me get any service other than webmi9n running !!! apache only works on my local ssytem, i can't telnet from other pc's to it, nothing ! I am getting 7.3 in a weeks time or so but I really want to be able to use 9 :/ but anyways...

here are a few questions :

a>I need to get samba working as a PDC or just a normal logon server for windows pc's that wont allow you to logon with wrong passwords

b> has to be a web server (just mnormal HTML for now...)

c> mail server what program should I use EXIM QMAIL sendmail?? and where is a "GOOD" tutorial in PDF for it? with pics cause i feel lost with those whole linux thing I cannot succeed and i am teariong out what is left of my last hairs!!!

Welcome to LQ

In the future, please use more appropriate thread titles, you'll likely get a much better response if your thread title explains your questions

C: Postfix or Exim. Postfix comes with EXCELLENT documentation within the tarball, as well as decent info from the FAQ and the little documentation they do have on the site.

D: There's one at the project page.
It's only a year old, so pretty much everything still applies

B: Apache works great as a webserver for just HTML, and is easily updated to support PHP as well.
