Installing a Linux server…

So i bought a barebone AMD 3000+ system to install a Linux server. It’s role is going to be to replace the current Windows 2003 server in my home Lan. Meaning, it should be a file and print server, provide DHCP and DNS service for the LAN, and forward all DNS queries outside my little world to the ISP DNS servers.

Ubuntu installed. But only when i disable Software RAID. With Software RAID the partitioning process always fails when it’s creating the one or the other partition (seems rather random).

After a few hours of trying i gave up on that. I will probably try again, installing it with hardware RAID this time, just to see if that works better.

But, then again, Ubuntu at least detected and worked correctly with the SATA controller when used in normal mode. Windows does not even know how to spell SATA in it’s setup program.

The interesting part, setting up DHCP, DNS and file/print server i need to delay until i have more time.
