    Simple Server Install


    Well I for my previous post I managed to get Fedora Core 2 cds from my friend. And he also donoted me a very old pc which is

    Pentuim II 300 Mhz
    96 MB RAM
    4 GB Hard

    So I get it to boot from CD and I installed fedora core 2 with server option selected but when installation complete I end up on some kind of command promote to enter password and user. When I enter the same user and pass as I selected in setup. but nothing GUI or grapical came. I m used to Windows so please help me setup my web server with graphics not command promote

    P.S: I m totaly new to linux very new not even know how to show direcrtory listing so please help in detail.

    The server install of Fedora assumes you want a headless server. For your hardware, a full gui-based install of Fedora will run a bit sluggish, but it will run (your memory is a bit low). You probably should have selected the Custom option in the installer and installed Gnome; then you would have booted into a graphical environment.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    For Gnome should I need to install Windows X too?. bcoz people here told me not to install windows X they say if u wanna setup a server u must not install windows X.

    Yes you definitely would have to. If you want any kind of graphical environment, you will have to install x.
