2 Questions Before New Install
I want to do a new Slackware 10.2 Install. I want to use It to host a Website and a Forum,
I have a Domain Name that I paid for from when I was paying for web space and It's still valid for 7 more months.
I was wondering If someone can help me with 2 things before I start this Install.
1 - For me to point my Domain name to my computer (that I'm setting up) Do I need to set It up with a static IP address or can I just choose DHCP.?
The reason I'm asking Is because I have tried 2 other installs (Slackware) and I can't get my Internet connection to work when I set It up with a static IP.
But It works fine (localhost and FTP) when I choose DHCP.
2 - Can I use 2 hard drives for this Installation, One for the Install and have the other one to host my website and forum.?
Or will this (having 2 hard drives) be complicated for a beginner ?
