Download And Install Ubuntu Server or Debian
First, a clean Ubuntu operating system or Debian must be installed. Do not use an existing system on which you have installed other applications and services like an existing web server and email server. The installation process will overwrite the existing settings.
Download latest stable
version of Ubuntu Server. Usually, it is called LTS (Long Term Support). It is
free and you can find it here:
For Debian, use http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst#smallercd. The installation process is almost identical to Ubuntu, but lighter and faster.
Chose the right version for you: 32 bit or 64 bit. Normally, if you have multicore processors and lots of GB of RAM you should go for 64 bit version, but if you are not sure download the 32 bit version. It will work on 64 bit too.
Install Ubuntu Server, Alternate or Debian.
Important note: When you are asked to configure network connection please make sure you input the correct settings. You need a working Internet connection in order to download and install Scrollout F1.
