OK, I saw the site but it still not giving me a step by step procedure process.
It assumes I know where to go to enter this information.
I am currently logged in to the KDE session and where to go from here
is my question. Please provide step by step on completing the process.

As the page says you should check at least if its installed by doing those procedures:

   1.  Start system-config-services
   2. Make sure that httpd and mysqld are started and selected to start on boot, then save the service configuration.
   3. Verify that your web server is working correctly by opening a browser and pointing it at http://localhost/ (which always points to the web server on your computer). You should see the test page for apache, the web server application.

Ok, I checked it, but it was under a different path.
1. System Settings -> Server Settings-> Services.
2. I did check both the httpd and mysqld and started the processes.
3. I checked the page and verified that the test page came up.

Now that I see the page where do I create the directory and place the website for
me to look at.

Thanks.

You want to setup a static IP for your machine and an email server?

For redhat (if its same as redhat 8.0) static IP:

in:

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

you should set something like this (change settings to fit your needs):

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
IPADDR=192.168.0.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
ONBOOT=yes

For an e-mail server its a bit more challenging... I would recommand you an other Unix distrib like Debian, FreeBSD or CentOS...

If you have a fully support RedHat account (Its no longer completely free since a couple of years) You should check with your redhat support.

I have set up some mail servers on Debian and FreeBSD but never on redhat so I'll not be able to help you more on that part.
