I am trying to install a server at work. This is an original server that is not replacing one. I am tring to set up all the basic needs to make things more efficient. I am trying to set 12.04 up to run as a pxe boot server, file server, and a print server. I have having dificulty getting started. Is there anyone who can give me some direction. :p

Here is a HOWTO which I found comprehensive and invaluable for me to start learning about server requirements.
Uses Webmin to allow your browser to connect and modify your server settings on your network.

Are you using the most current version of this how-to?
Version numbers are located @ top right of this page. Latest versions are available at my homepage http://woodel.com
Under the Solutions tab
"Setting up a Linux Server, Start to Finish, using Webmin". By Kevin Elwood

And on your server..........

Logon to your server and download from your server with :
sudo wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.580_all.deb
### web site is here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/webadmin/webmin_1.590_all.deb
Install with :
sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.590_all.deb

Add extra libraries with :
sudo apt-get -f install

Uses a browser pointed to "https://your_server_IP:10000" to edit files, create shares, startup daemons etc..
