Linux Server for the very new

    I have been tasked with setting up a server
    (initially just file and exchange) for about 15 people on 8 computers.
    I was a Win 98 master, but my knowledge went downhill from there. I
    installed Dapper via "The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server " instructions. Where do I go from there?

    I am very new at this, and would need to follow instructions such as
    the ones from "perfect server". I can now log in with putty, but
    that's as far as I can go. Our computers are behind a firewall from
    the parent organization. So for now, I want to set up a file server,
    mail server, and create simple webpage for the network.

    Could you direct me to resources for my level of knowledge? My budget at this time is $0, so even a book would be stretching it.

    Again, I'm so ignorant on all this that I would need complete
    step-by-step instructions. I basically like a "perfect server" part 2!

    Have a look here:

    For this you should install ISPConfig. It lets you create web sites and email accounts by using your browser. :)
