Are there any linux servers that support the .asp pages that you can support using M$ servers?? I would like to know if there are any, and where are they, and are they reliable and easy to configure, to set up under RedHat5.0??

Active Server Pages are a Microsoft set of extensions for HTML.
When an ASP page is requests the server locates it, processes it, and then sends it to the requestor. Since it is processed on the server end you would have to write an ASP 'compiler' module for apache / develop an HTTP server that handles it or some other variation of re-inventing th wheel. Above mentioned was PHP, other options are from simplest to not so simple:
use server side extensions - included in apache.
use cgi scripting - included in apache, perl is preferable for this
use php - included in apache
use dynamic HTML, still not completely standardized, but it is in use on the internet and is quite effective at making dazzling webpages.
There are other options availible but these are probably the best documented. Information on the various apache options can be found at www.apache.org, or on your local apache server a http://localhost/manual/ directory is installed by default typically.
