This link to the RUTE User's tutorial should get you started nicely. It should help you get going with Apache, the web server, it may show you how to associate PHP and some CGI extensions to it, too. There should even be a tutorial on FTP, too. It's possible that it will have a quick setup guide on doing a mail server.


For the other functions, Red Hat includes webmin, as does Mandrake, I believe. There are many distros which have that. mySQL has excellent documentation on their website, www.mysql.com . As for the Counter-Strike server, you'll probably want to check the website of the makers of that game for setup information.

Thanx Very much for that just another question do u know if
Red Hat Fedora 2 comes with webmin?

Probably does. Personally, though, I'd look into adminstering services manually, as more often than not, webmin won't do everything you need it to.
