Thanks to all for the responses (last week). Good news - I finally managed a clean install with Suse10 last Friday so I am sticking with that distro. I started to explore, after discovering Yast, I installed more packages, including php, mysql, apache, samba, postgresql + dependencies.
I had used the default base install.
Now I have figured out that it defaulted to 2 partitions (1. swap, 2. / which is reisernfs).
So now after all this I am thinking of a re-install and re-partition as follows(based on readup on the net) and using ext3 instead(this is based on hearsay not my knowledge):
Does this look reasonable and how should the sizing look like?
I have been told 'swat' is a good gui for configuring samba config, for the unfamiliar. Comments?
Although I wanted something similar to the Windows ldap based Active Directory, I am told to take a few steps back from openldap at this point.
I was testing Suse9.3 Enterprise at home, the os doesn't tell me how many days are left before it quits on me? I guess I could wait for that day- anyone tried this?
Apologies for so many questions!
