Learning to Run !!!
I am planning on buying a Managed Server from Server Matrix.
I am not planning to start web hsoting business with it initially.
I need it for Streaming Videos. I want to know that to operate a dedicated server, what do I need.
I have this book with me
Redhat Press - Red Hat Linux Networking and System Administration
I will be installing Fedora Core 1 OS on another computer to learn a bit . Is fedora similar to Redhat Enterprize
Would it be helpful in understanding and operating a live dedicated server.

it all depends on what software you will run.
and for redhat they are all the same except some commercial features.
I can really advice you to take a server with servermatrix. They offer good & fast support and their network is just absolutely great !
I would never recommend Managed because their network, hardware and support are undependable. As for streaming video and music you can use Shoutcast (
http://www.shoutcast.com) on Fedora or RH9. You don't need RHE, but it is a nice OS. Fedora has a lot of kernel updates, but yum does great at doing updates without user intervention.
Before I did anything production wise I would invest in some training on a machine in your house before going out on the web. An unsecured box will get compromised very quickly.
Yes, i am jsut installed Fedora Core 1 on my other PC and im everything looks real easy since its graphical.
I would like to know as how would I see the Server on SM , would it be just like running Fedora Gnome in graphical state or would it be all in Terminal Mode.
How would I connect to it ?
There will be no graphical interface on a server. You can get something like CPanel, Ensim or Plesk installed to manage the websites but all system administration will be shell based.
What if I use Linuxconf ?
Yes, Linuxconf will be able to make your managing work easier. You may consider Webmin besides Linuxconf, if you are looking at free control panels.
If you are more to running a webserver for serving your clients, you can pay for a Hosting Software like cPanel/WHM, Plesk, Ensim, H-Sphere or Directadmin.
Hope that helps.
