Trying to install - Ubuntu 6.xx LTS for a mail server
 
I am trying to follow the instructions on ISP-Server Setup - Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger -http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_5.10 but using a new version-6.xx lts (i think).There are several commands where you are to cut and paste. I am not sure how to do this since I would have to have the system fully up in order to do so. I am new to ubuntu and trying to setup a mail server for a friend. Any help would be much :)

Also I have downloaded webadmin-it is in the form of a exe how do I load that

Thanks

Happy

Surely it is easier to use the 6.06 LTS tutorial written for your installation?

http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.06

As it mentions on page 3 of the tutorial, once you have done the basic install, installed SSH, and configured the network, it is easiest to continue the installation from a separate workstation machine running Putty or similar, as this allows you to have the tutorial and a console terminal window open for the cut and paste work. WinSCP is also very useful if it is a Windows machine.
I have never seen a Webmin .exe version. Go to the Webmin homepage and get the .deb package, would be my advice.

Any ideas?

Might be a temporary problem. Can you try again? If it stilll doesn't work - is your internet connection working? And what's in /etc/resolv.conf?

There have been a couple of problems with various ubuntu repositories in the last week or so.
The usual 'try again a bit later'.

unable to do a get-update
 
There is nothing in my /etc/resolv.conf

It was just one or two of the usual problems -

Then you should put in your DNS server in this format:
Code:

nameserver <ip-address-of-dns-server>
You can use the DNS you got from your ISP.

Grtz,

If you don't know any DNS servers from your ISP, you can try this:
Code:

nameserver 145.253.2.75
nameserver 193.174.32.18
