    yes I did. I even got the 'boot from cd rom' message, but whether I hit the enter key or not, nothing happened.

    Do other boot CDs work? WinXP install disk is an obvious one to try.

    Re: using Linux for a web/intranet server

    So did the Linux ISO download ok? Did you check the MD5sum? Did you verify the burn?

    Re: using Linux for a web/intranet server

    the linux downloaded ok, both at school and at home, though in the nature of things I did leave both machines unattended for a short period, but there was no untoward activity in either instance. However, I didn't check the MD5sum.

    I think both disks are sitting on my desk at home, so it'll have to keep.

    Are you creating the CD correctly? Not just dragging and dropping the file on the cd file system and burning it (copying it)?

    Re: using Linux for a web/intranet server

    right, after that short break. I started afresh and now have a disk which boots and gets as far as installing 16% of the base system and then stops with the message, "Bootstrap Error. Couldn't download psmisc." It picked up the network settings earlier on during the install. I ought to say that I'm installing this on a spare machine attached to the school network.

    belay that last post. rather than using the go back option i aborted the install. It seems to be going swimmingly.

    Re: using Linux for a web/intranet server

    I don't use Linux at all in the school (shock- horror-)- although I did trial it for a few things at the start of the year and got quite far thanks to Geoff and others here.

    Even so, I now run Apache Web Server on a Windows 2003 Server very happily. Easy to setup, and no fiddling with a new OS. Just fiddling with an existing one really
