    Can anyone point me to good clear guides on trying to setup an unbuntu 8.04 server? a friend wants to learn how to do this for his home setup. It needs to be able to access his other pcs and teh web, maybe even be a web server and dmz if possible.
    I know there a few guides on teh web, but the ones he needs need to be very clear, aimed at beginners etc. He's good a picking things up, just so long as thier clear. (also the clearer the better as it stops him asking me questions i cant answer!)

    On a side note, is 8.04 best for this or is there a newer version of unbuntu thats better?

    I'm not a linux person, but 9.04 is the latest version, so I guess there are big improvements in that over 8.04.

    Found this: Ubuntu for beginners: How to install Ubuntu server 9.04

    It's Step by Step with pictures, so I guess that would suit needs, plus on the side of that page you have other related subjects.

    Hope that helps :)

    Thanks Ken, showed him the beginners guide to 9.04 and seemed happy with that.
