I have just installed UBUNTU 8.10 on my rather old pc. The installation worked fined. And after that I installed about 250 updates. Fine. The purpose is that I want to install a webeserver, ftpserver and mailserver.

And the goal is to install VHC. After browsing around it all eneded in that you don't have that and that.. and that depends on that..and so on.

So my question is: what is the simplest way to accomplish this. (I gave up they asked me that proftpd-mysql i out of date...sigh)

Now I realize that I should have downloaded the server version of UBUNTU. Maybe that will fix my problem...

yes, if you want to make your pc as server with all those services then you should consider server version...

I close this thread, when I saw that I can't install ubuntu server together with winxp
