V. INTRODUCTION:


The use and setup of server software applications is generally a job requirement of those students whom have attending a four year college in Computer Science or had many, many years of extensive experience in this area. I present it here, not to make network administrators out of these students, but to give them a greater appreciation for those individuals that do that task.
