Hi everyone, I am pretty knowledgeable when it comes to home computing and networking, though by no means an expert. I am currently going to school online for a degree in IT/Networking and have just about completed my first academic year. This means I will finally be getting into my core classes.
While trying to help my cousin find a part for her PC a phone call I made to a company local to her area, not mine, said they sometimes need help in the area I live in. The problem is they are strictly a business class oriented support company, which means, server support. As far as my knowledge goes about servers, I’ve seen a couple. What I would like to find out from you all is this: are there interactive tutorials on the net for server basics, servers for beginners tutorials, or any like information that could point me in the right direction. I know I can google it, but sifting through the mountains of information takes forever. I figured since this is an IT-centric site someone may be able to point me in the right direction, knowing exactly where to look, saving me some time, that could be used learning instead of searching. I would love to be able to help this company out and be able to do some contract work for them. If any of you have any information on the subject I would be most appreciative. Thank you.

The best thing to do is build and play with your own. If you dont have a spare computer kicking around a quick goolge for VPS providers will yeald many cheap monthly options.

Grab a box/vps and build a server to host a simple cms such as Wordpress or Media wiki, then setup your server to allow you to send a receive mail.

Find out what you would be doing at the company and setup similar systems on your server.

Thank you for the suggestions. I will try just that. As far as an OS what should I look into? UBUNTU, UNIX, LINUX, MS server?
