Server\Client networking?

Does Linux Red Hat 4.1 have the capabilities of running as a network in a server\client relationship -- not peer to peer? With the capability of creating passworded accounts for multiple users? In other words, can it do, what Novell Netware and Windows NT can do?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes. RedHat is Linux, Linux is Unix, and Unix has been doing all of these things long before Bill Gates got his first tricycle. In fact, MOST of the services on the internet (www servers, ftp servers, news, irc, chess, search engines, name servers, routers, login accounts, heck - you name it!) are provided by unix machines (a fair ammount of them linux). I'm afraid you've allowed Microsoft (a commercial company) to brainswash you by making you think otherwise. :)
