Hi all, i am wanting to setup a RHL 9 virtual machine to practice administrating a linux network, as well as having linux/windows workstations that connect to it, is RHL 9 still a good candidate for this? i specifically want to use and get familiar with 389 directory server, but again, is this worth learning or is this stuff out of date and no longer used?


Initially, I wanted to get a windows server of some sort running to setup an Active Directory but i dont have a disc to create a virtual machine with, and i dont want to get anything off the net, can anyone give me any reccomendations for linux server blends and Directory Access Protocols to use for someone who is trying to learn about how to adminstrate a domain or small business network


I'm open for anything really. About 2-3 years ago now, I had a unix book that was called Administrating Unix or something to that effect, it talked all about setting up and Administrating a unix server (in theory and some shell script as well) but it didnt use anything fancy in fact it just used the stuff that was built into unix (the book was from like 1988) I was not able to keep the book nor did i finish it but it seemed to have all the stuff that a unix admin in training needed to become proficient.
