    need network administrator


    I have a small business with only 5 workstations, networked to a Compaq Proliant server, running Linux Fedora. Our adminstrator is MIA. What can we do to get control over the network and pass it on to a new adminstrator. I know nothing about the server and its operation. I do not even have the username and password to gain access. Provided I can get access into the server, how difficult would it be to pass the network onto a new person? Thanks, David

    If you can gain access to the hardware then it wouldn't be hard at all. First thing I would do is move away from Fedora as it becomes out dated and unsupported very quickly as it is a Test Bed for RedHat and the cycles are very short ~18 months. I would suggest you move to CentOS if you like RedHat.

    Gentoo guide w/ Fedora note at the bottom

    I agree on Fedora, it's really not designed for server usage. Anything from Debian, CentOS, SLES, Ubuntu Server, or even Arch would be more suitable. I would let your new admin decide, and if you know much about Linux at all you could use it as an interview question to help gauge competence.
