    linux tutorials

    Hi, i have been working with windows 2k web servers for a while now, and want to set up my own home server.

    I cannot afford licences for win2k servers and wish to try out linux.

    Which linux version would u recommend for a web server, and also, any good tutorials on the internet that show you how to secure a linux web server (because it has to be secure)

    Also, how much mem would you need to run a linux webserver with about 40 people connected at a given time.

    Thanx

    All of them -- well, except maybe RedHat 4.3. Yes, lots of good articles on securing a linux web server. Try here:
