Thanks so much to everyone who has helped so far. I am all installed and can access PHPMYADMIN but get the following message: The configuration file now needs a secret passphrase (blowfish_secret). Could anyone help please?

My /usr/share/phpmyadmin/conf.inc.php file is empty...is that right?
IMO switch to Debian or Ubuntu now before you learn a whole new OS. By far the easiest linux distro to work with imo. Plus it would seem the debian based ones, particulaly ubuntu, are the most popular with edugeek users so you'll get the most help with those.
apt-get install package
If the package relies on other packages (dependancies); apt-get -f install
search the package repositary; apt-cache search package
As someone has already posted, to set up a LAMP webserver with phpmyadmin on ubuntu/debian it is littrally "apt-get install aforementioned packages", thats it, all the config is done for you. All that you need to do is put a password on mysql

FTP...? Yack! Try this WinSCP :: Free SFTP and FTP client for Windows as your windows client, with "apt-get install openssh-server" on your server.
But to answer your question, yes and no. Yes it is perfectly possible and relatively easy with samba, but no because you will wreck permissions. If you still really want to do it, its a non-production server which you are just "dicking around" with, you will happily fix permissions after working on it, and you understand the only reason I mention this is it is a learning exercise in working with webmin and samba;
Then goto https://<your-server-ip>:10000 in a web browser, and goto the server/samba module, convert unix users to samba users, add a folder share for /var/www and add yourself as a read/write user. Also goto file permissions and change both new unix files andf new unix folders to read 777.Code:chmod -R 777 /var/www cd /tmp wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/webadmin/webmin/1.520/webmin_1.520_all.deb?r=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.webmin.com%2Fdownload.html&ts=1289737871&use_mirror=kent apt-get install samba dpkg -i *.deb apt-get -f install
Like i say this is NOT how you would do it, and you really want to get into the habit of using something like winscp and then changing permissions as you go. The reason for this is the files and folders should be owned by user and group; www-data, and set with the appropriate permissions, usually something like 750 but this will varie depending on if its your config.php file etc.
Oh, and after that, have a look over teh samba config file to see how what you have done relates to it.
