Apache is the web server software, Mandrake is just the operating system; like Windows is the OS and through it you run software packages. I don't even know if Apache has some sort of graphical user interface now, I've always configured it from a Unix shell account (i.e. command line prompt). Anyway, by now, Apache must have designed some sort of ease-of-use setup, head over to http://httpd.apache.org to read more and download.
I don't know how stable Mandrake 10.0 is since it is fairly new. I recommend using 9.1 as I have had good luck with that. http://www.linuxiso.org/distro.php?distro=29

Jeez. I'm sorry to hear that. That sucks. I hope you get a coupla really good leads soon.pchilson wrote:I was a system admin on RedHat and Mandrake for the past 4 years but lost my job in January due to the lousy tech economy, outsourcing ...blah,blah,blah

i586 is for PC
PPC is for Power PC (Mac)
Mandrake Move is a bootable live CD
Mandrake starts with a base Redhat and makes their own enhancements geared more to the desktop/end user. Redhat has always been geared more to the server/technical user than the desktop user.
Now that RedHat is no longer distroing I don't know the status of Mandrake and what the base will be. RedHat is foucsing soley on the Enterprise now.
There are so many differences from one release version to the next it would be impossible to simply "state the difference between 9.1 and 9.2"
Speaking for myself, if I was going to download one of the versions to burn I would get 10.0
What used to be the RedHat free is now being called "Fedora" and RedHat as a company is still contributing but is no longer in control of it.

She's a long and winding road...
LOL! How are ya, JamieW?!JamieW wrote:I'd just like to add "what?"
No clue what you folks are talking about and frankly I think this conversation needs to include some form of other discussion. From now on, please include in all responses the following sentence filled out to make some sense:
"If [forumer's name] were an operating system, [he][she] would be [operating system] because [reason]."
I thank you for your support. Remember, this goes after actually providing information.

if anyone has any tips or suggestions about which of these is most preferable i'd appreciate any input.

as a matter of fact i have quite a bit of experience as a Linux USER.
