    No Clue : Hardware reqmts 4 Linux server box

    hi ,

    I am planning to make a linux server which should be able to support a web application for my team, act as print server, mail server, file server,security set up.No idea though can install Linux very well.

    The ENVironment details :

    This system(2 b linux box):
    p3, 850 mHz, Mercury Motherboard, 256 MB RAM, 1 ethernet card(1 more is there places in the slot but LAN is plugged to only one).

    Network LAN
    Networked with Novell Netware, I find here a permaweld tree.

    Also have :
    Broadband connection, 1 public IP.

    Is 2 ethernet cards required for this linux box to server the network as well access internet.

    Is it possible to make this system accessible for a system for my system in my room through the internet.(I too have a broadband connection in my hostel.

    Would there be someone who would like to help me with this atleast setting up the box after I install LInux in my system.

    Yeah you should be ok-ish with that spec, as Linux doesn't require a huge amount of ram. If you start using a lot of server resources you might want to upgrade the ram and processor.
