I heard that you can create a server from Ubuntu 10.10, even if it's not server edition. does anyone have a good guide to doing it in standard ubuntu? all i can find is on server edition where there's no GUI. or is terminal the only way? (im just setting up a basic home server for sharing pics and text docs, so i don't have to worry about security just yet. ill get to that some time later) thanks!

install mysql for a database server
install samba to share files with windows pcs
