oh god, not another linux thread...
ok, let me begin by saying i do not know
about linux, nor unix, nor any of its siblings.
with that out of the way, i have been instructed to format one of our shop computers, install linux, and set it up as a webserver.
my first question is: what is the best version of linux, and where can i get it?
second, how do i go about installing it and setting it up, and what are some of the things to be watchful of when installing and setting up?
third, i know about as much about making webservers as i do about linux itself.
we already have redhat 6.0 on a CD here at the shop, and my boss is wanting to use that one for various reasons. he wants to stick with redhat because it is probably the most popular version of linux, and he has already paid for this version of it (came with a book) so we have some referance for support.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
