Linux Server

I want to set up a dial in server using Redhat Linux 5.0

What do I have to set up and what things do I need to install?

I have no real experience with LINUX.
The users will be accessing this via use of a modem and need their own unique login.
Also is there a way I can set this up so that it is a dial in web server. This would be a better option. I cannot afford NT Server but I have done remote access stuff with NT.

Should be no problem with Linux. You have to install PPP for communicating via modem. If you want to install a web server you can use apache. This should by on your contribution. Then you have to set up your network for your modem.

I have read that stuff before but I am still none the wiser in actually setting up that software under Linux

Perhaps you should try reading some of the HOWTO's, available at http://sunsite.unc.edu/mdw Especially the PPP-HOWTO and Serial-HOWTO are of interest. The Intranet-HOWTO lists a number of available services you could offer on your server.

I'm hoping this is helpful, take care
