Edubuntu used to have its 2 discs 1 being the Edubuntu server and the other being the desktop, then they advised people use Ubuntu Server to install on the server. I can't remember what you needed to select but there was a procedure to go through. My advise would be to look at the Edubuntu website and read the documentation for it. Then if you don't understand or need further help ask questions.

Ok so first of i want to say sorry that i couldn't replay earlier.

So, XD
taylorkh a LAN party is as party at witch nerds like me connect there PCs via a router and start playing Games like CS or any game that has a multilayer capability. The router it self is only there to assign the IPs and make the conection.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol A.K.A DHCP
AS fare as i know it is there to bring new PCs in to networks with out having to configure them manually.
Our router should have it running.

We have not jet started with the networking part of the system because we have to get the server running first.
So fare we have UBUNTU 11.10 installed on the server and we have to configure it so that we could connect it to the PC that is running EDUBUNTU.

O a static IP address is a permanent IP that never changes. It is assigned to the server to make networking easier.

To change the eth0 seting i thing we would have to edit the file [ /etc/network/interfaces ]
sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces (as the command to edit the file)

When the file opens these lines should be add and can be modified as needed

auto eth0

iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.,,,.,,,
netmask ,,,.,,,.,,,.,,,

And that is all i know so fare.
If i forgot anything pleas let me know.

thank you.

TO onebuck : the link from Linux Home Networking was really helpful Thank you.

You are correct about DHCP. It will handle new additions to the network - especially with respect to assigning IP addresses to the new devices. DHCP also has the capability to "reserver" IP addresses for specific devices. Have a look into this capability on your router. It can provide an alternative to manually setting the IP address of the server by changing the server's networking configuration. AND by assigning the server's IP address with DHCP you avoid the situation where YOU assign an IP address to the server which DHCP wants to assign to something else.
