I´m sorry I didn´t answer before, but I just couldn´t, I was too busy at my

  Tom, I did as you suggest me but it was a surprise, I don´t have acccess
to that web site!! I was not prompted for a password or any thing alike but
it was prohibited from my server. Nevertheless my workstation could do it.
I  know you might be wondering: how come, but it´s simple. I have a RedHat
server destinated to my studies but it is not connected to Internet,
although it has a limited access to certain web sites (plenty of them). My
institution doesn´t have a complete access to Internet, yet. So the server
of my workstations is the same for my RedHat server, despite it have a
real  IP number it is much more limited and controled by the upper server
than my workstations are at the lab. That´s why my server couldn´t connect
to hostopia.

  After I install Samba 2.2.8a-2  does it have a GUI?. Will it start running
just like that?. What´s gonna happen?. How can I make Apache, Samba and w2k
workstations to understand each other and work together?.

  As a matter of fact, I don´t have any experiences in installing and
running a Linux server. I need to learn how to inicialize  and configure the
services in that server (Apache, FTP, e-mail and others). I have a PC with
256 RAM and 40Gb ROOM, and I maded it a server by installing Linux RedHat
7.2 (Enigma). Could you please give a hand on this?. If you think I might
 migrate to other RedHat releases in order to make it easier, just tell me
how and I will.

  Thanks a lot again to all of you, and please forgive my English grammar, I
speak Spanish, but I´m doing my best.
