Hi Tim, there are no dumb questions, only dumb answers. :-)


Please feel free to ask anything you need here.  The people in this list
are culturally incapable of not helping. We've all been infected by
the cultural meme of Open Source.  :)


The specific areas that I am hitting problems include

- Establishing a DAV server for mozilla calander
- Getting samba working properly in a WIN 2003 Server domain
(authentication / File sharing)
- Establishing a Local Time Server
- Establishing a Fedora Core Repository for updates
- Properly configuring Sendmail
- Properly configuring Mailman
- Implementing some kind of internal IM for our school (Jabber looks
like the most likely candidate)
- Getting NIS (if necessary working)
- Getting NFS working among Linux boxes
- Preparing for FC3 upgrade to all of my FC2 boxes


Thats quite a list. My first recommendation is to stop by http://www.tldp.org and look at the listing of "How To" documents.

These documents are not reference manuals, they are actual descriptions
of exactly "How To" use/configure various resources on Linux.

Which of the above problems is your most critical? (or perhaps we should
tackle the easiest one first.. ).

Much of what you're after can be found at:
http://www.brennan.id.au/ (Linux Home Server HOWTO). Plenty of good advice to be found there.


Paul.
