I first came across Linux in 1998 trying out Slackware and Mandrake. I hated them, comming from a Windows world it all seemed so difficult and pointless. Whilst at university and working as a system administrator for Wilmslow High. I have reapraised my view and gained a lot more experience. These days I think Linux is wonderful!
I AM NOT A LINUX EXPERT, I just learned a bit here and there while setting up my server. The following are some of the services I have setup on linux so far this is partly to refresh my memory if I need to make changes and partly to help whoever is reading this document.
If you wondering at this moment whether I actually use linux heres an answer of sorts all my websites are built in using vi from scratch, I have 3 linux computers running Gentoo Debian. In the past I have tried SuSE Mandrake Redhat and Slackware all with variong degrees of success. The services I run include ssh, samba, apache, iptables (sharing my adsl connection, nis, nfs, sendmail, cyrus imap and squid.
