Re: [vox-tech] home server

Bit of a mishmash of issues here..
 some thoughts to consider:

1)  For a dual-boot system you can probably use the workstation install and add whatever "server" software you need... the primary difference between the "server" and "workstation" installers is in the default set of packages that get loaded.

2) It is simply impractical to load "all packages" on any computer, server or not.	Proceed one step at a time, and learn how each server package needs to be set up to meet your needs by reading the documentation in /usr/share/doc/packagename. The workstation defaults will keep it generally functional while you experiment. Once you are familiar with the software, you will be in a better position to tackle a dedicated server install.

3) Ubuntu can work with either static or DHCP.  Note that telling the system to ask for an address from your router is very different from setting up your system to hand out addresses as a DHCP server (not advisable until you know your networking requirements better).

The installfest is a good idea even if you don't wait until then to try again.
