  1. I would like to learn Ubuntu Server (not desktop). The server edition does not have a desktop and is command prompt based. I am very familiar with Windows and Windows Servers, IIS 5 and IIS 6 as well as with MS-DOS. What I am looking to do is to be able to set up an experimental Linux web server. I have installed Apache on Windows test servers successfully but would like to do so with Linux. How long would it take a typical person with my level of knowledge to learn how to set up and administer a Linux webserver? Thank you.
