Home Server Part 6

As a side-note I was very lucky to receive another computer from a friend of family, that also happened to be old. So I decided to set that up with the server as just a desktop computer alongside it with another open source operating system.

Second Computer Specs:
  • Dell Dimension L600CX
  • Intel Celeron
  • 312 MB RAM
  • 10 GB HD
  • Windows ME (now Ubuntu 9.04)
Other Parts:
  • Dell Quietkey keyboard
  • Logitech laser mouse

Back to the server part though; I have been having some trouble with the Ubuntu Server 8.04 OS. It may just be my nowhere near complete knowledge of how the OS works, but nevertheless thankfully there is an abundance of documentation and I shall dive into it. If I am still unsuccessful then I am planning on seeing how capable Fedora 10 would be to use for server applications. This has turned out to be much more difficult then I thought it would be, but is a very good learning experience. :)
