Part of a project I am involved in is the design and configuration of a small network. The clients involved unfortunately have to be Windows XP based but the servers can be what ever I want to use. I have spent some time using SUSE Enterprise Servers 9 and 10 as well as Ubuntu Edgy but I am basically a novice in both. I have also been considering Novell Netware 6.5 as that is what a friend uses but I am still none the wiser. Does anyone have any words of wisdom to impart on a linux newbie who hasn't got a clue?
