with Linux you can do anything you can use Fedora Core 8 Ubuntu Server and Redhat with full confidence i prefer Ubuntu Server.

moreover DNS Squid and LDAP Are child play for Linux

thanks for the suggestions.Well for a new user let me recommend a good site to start learning Linux .In my opinion 1st I shall learn the "abc" of LINUX commands which are also used in UNIX like VI editor etc etc.
In Pakistan is there any Govt Institute which offer Linux training? Lahore or Islamabad? Though I have a very little knowledge of Linux but i know it is batter to learn any thing from scratch.
Well I have worked on windows servers but now want to say it bye. Any more suggestion please must guide me.
thanks in advance.
