Question Red Hat 9 Clean install.. What next? Totally lost

Ok I've always wanted a Web server and ftp server to mess around with and co-host some files for my Hosted web site. I've scrapped up the money and parts to put a machine togethere FINALY! Got Red Hat 9 on it Since Fedora doesn't have any info on it yet.

I've played with red hat 7 long time ago when I was still in school. But I hardly know anything on how to work it. So need some help with that.

I want to run Apache, Myqsl for a database. with php and I want it to be Secure also. From what I read Red hat 9 has Myqsl, apache, and php.

SO I think I got everything installed on it. Now how do I go about configuring and all that stuff? I've done some reading on the net but don't really under stand and the tech babble. And it's not step by step atlest from what I've found.. IF anyone can please help or guide me to the right path it would be most welcome. Thanks in advance

Totally lost in Linux,

sounds like you'd probably want to install webmin and then use that to configure all your stuff...

you can find howtos for all the stuff you want (apache, proftp, mysql, php, etc) by searching

You might try getting a book on it. I saw a book at Barnes & Noble this past weekend that addresses all three in one volume. Probably very streamlined from the size but it may be enough to get you started. Otherwise, you can go to each of the websites and download documentation.
