    webserver


    A friend and I plan to use mandrake or redhat 9 to run a web server for a site we're working on. Questions:

    1)Is it even possible?
    2)What would we need, besides the OS's?
    3)Anything else I should know about doing this?

    1) Yes.
    2) some web server, like Apache. (included in RedHat, and probalby in Mandrake too (haven't tried mandrake myself yet))
    3) A lot of things, but the apache manual should be agood starting point.
