how to install a server using Linux
Your question is a bit vague. What exaclty are you trying to do and what type of information do you need?
yeah well i am trying to to install a server, well i want to learn, using a Linux Operating system and configuring it by installing sql, apache, etc. hope this is not to much of me. thanks (starting from scratch)
The only way to do it is to grab a distro and get started. We can answer your questions as you go. Check out the distro polls in the Linux Newbie section and pick a distro that appeals to you. Next install it - note that many distros give you the option to install mysql/apache during the install.
i got this cd can i install a server with it
Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r0 "Etch" - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20070407-11:55
can some one help me.
Debian is a great distro, one of the best in my opinion. However I don't usually recommend it to new users. You will need to have a knowledge of Linux beforehand so you know what to install to have a running system as the default install is quite minimal.
Try starting with a distro like Fedora, openSUSE or Ubuntu. They will provide you with a fully functional system from the start to which you can add your server packages. If you still want to use Debian I would recommend either reading up a lot of their documentation or trying one of the other distros I mentioned until your are more familiar with the workings of Linux.
i have installed Debian already i have it running in a virtual machine using vmware. yeah that is true that u say that it is a more complex, well i installed it and its working great so far. but i don't know if this is the way to do a server using Debian..
yes i have Ubuntu.
