Well I did a strip down using the FC4 tutorial Apache section, MySQL section and for rounding out added SMB. So now the thing boots with the webserver and MySQL active. All I have to do is setup SMB so I can get into it from my MS terminals (not worried about passwords since its local only) and setup telnet to reboot or shut it down and I will drop the monitors off and have it all by its lonesome on a shelf.
Anybody here got familiarity with SMB and could post a conf file that has bare min. guest access and share directories all writable Id be most apreciative. The nI can mod it to suit my system and finally be done with this project and get back to asp & php >
