    The first thing todo would be to install mandrake on your PC. Once you've done that install and configure the seperate HTTP/SMTP etc servers seperatly. There is plenty of documentation already available on the net for how to do this for each server, it would be pointless to re-write it all here.

    To install apache with PHP: http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.unix.php (see apache 1.3x and 2.0 pages)

    To install sendmail visit sendmail.org

    To install the squid HTTP Proxy visit http://www.squid-cache.org/ and follow the configuration guide and user guide links

    etc etc

    What would the benefits of that be compared to a normal harddisk installation of the server in your mind?

    How would you and the users be satisfied with a slow running server on a cd-rom?

    I think the question has merit as refreshing and original, but it's hard for me too see the point other than your server being a moving target
