    About that quota thing, can you post the output of
    cat /etc/fstab
    And of
    sudo fdisk -l

    About connecting to your router with a static IP, something as simple a that should work :

    You should avoid using addresses in the DHCP server range ( to, as it might confuse your router.

    One last thing, those instructions you use to setup a LAMP server :

    This guy "Falko Timme", mentions at the beginning of the installation :

    I'm sure you like to have full control too, but that might not be the simplest way to do it. The option "Install a LAMP server" that you can see here would probably be more appropriate, and simpler.

    I appreciate that I dont understand it very well at all but im only young, 20 and my dad is trying to help me to get into linux as I feel that it might be what I want to do when im older. I appreciate all the help you have given me and that I might be asking you questions every step of the way, ill try to find out more myself using google and the like, but I want to do it the hard way and make mistakes along the way, so that I get a better understanding.

    I read up on quotas, and I found out its to do with the allocation of disc space that a program / user is allowed so that the HD doesnt clog up, am I right?

    from the code cat /etc/fstab

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro,usrquota,grpquota 0 1
    /dev/sda5 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
    and from sudo fdisk -l

    Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4865 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hda1 * 1 4689 37664361 83 Linux
    /dev/hda2 4690 4865 1413720 5 Extended
    /dev/hda5 4690 4865 1413688+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    ill sort out the ip addresses when I have installed the rest of the server and let you know, I just want to get it up and running.
