Newbie - Configuring Fedora 7 Web/Win Server
 
Hi All,

I apologise if this is an incredibly simple question, and I am happy to be pointed at any good tutorials or reference material to help me understand Fedora better. I have not worked much with Fedora, and I am still getting to understand alot of it's simple workings (I must say - "yum" is incredible! When will Micro$oft learn?)

Anyway, I have a server box which I am configuring for a mate. What we are trying to get out of it is the following:
  • Apache Webserver
  • MySQL Database Server
  • PostgreSQL Database Server
  • Printer Server (for Windows Clients)
  • Sharefolder (for Windows Clients)

At present, I am using the tutorial The Perfect Server (HowToForge) as a base for this build (I am of two minds whether to bother installing the mail server side of things), and I have heard "Samba" mentioned for the Windows client handling, but I am hoping for some direction on how to adapt the configuration detailed in the "Perfect Server" tutorial to my needs.

Any suggestions, referrals, etc. welcome.

Thanks.

You should try Debian's apt, which is in my opinion much better than yum. :)

Maybe the tutorials in this category: http://www.howtoforge.com/taxonomy_menu/1/51 (although most of them are for Debian/ubuntu) give you some ideas.

Apt is the best in my opinion as well. A truly amazing package manager :).
