Linux server for work but don't know how?


At work we have one file server with NT4 I think as the OS.  One mail server
firewall running Linux.  (Hence why I am playing around with it at home).
We have 3 other computers connected to the network running Windows98.  The
rest of us use laptops (6 off) which we plug in when we are in the office.

Now work is talking of upgrading their file server.  They have a quote in
like 10k New Zealand using the old NT software.  I would love the chance to
put in a Linux file server but don't feel confident enough.

What advice can you give me?  How much knowledge does someone really need to
know to make this happen and ask work if I can do it?  I can see one hurdle
and that is our accounting software is windows based.  Maybe even joining
the mentors list would be appropriate?

I would appreciate some input on this but I think the project is probably
too big for me.  They do want mirror disks in case a hard drive crashes but
don't think they need to go the whole hog with raid control.  Then with
mirror disks do you really need a tape backup?

Cheers Al
