AOA,

Dear LP Members,

I am writing a manual regarding Setting up Linux as a Server. I am including following Servers.

1. DHCP Server.
2. DNS Server.
3. APACHE Server.
4. SQUID Proxy Server.
5. IPTABLES (with example of few scripts that i have made).

And also including few basic things such as,

1. Installation of RHEL 4 (with snapshots).
2. Basic Network Configuration.

I want to know, should i include any other stuff in this manual, should i include any other Server(s).

Please let me know.

Include FTP and NIS NFS servers as well as they are very small ones. And yes don't jump up with server installations 1st give some touch of basic commands and basic knowledge of linux then go upto server configurations.

You can find me there if you require any help in this regard.

And Yes adding some email server like Sendmail or Qmail will be a good idea
