Dear Experts:

I have purchased a ubuntu certified hardware (ibm x3400 m3), i have been asked to install and configure the following:
samba domain controller (pdc),dhcp,dns,ftp and squid and also install windows 2003/2008 as a guest OS due to this i think installing zentyal on a new machine is not possible because i have to run atleast two guests on this server (windows and centos) hence planning to install the ubuntu server edtion 10.4 LTS and then install the zentyal please provide me the how to docs or step by step guide , Iam looking for the how to doc or step by step guide for installing the zentyal on an existing Ubuntu Server Edition( ubuntu server is already installed ). Please help me in this

Sir, Thanks for the reply. Iam looking for the zentyal to be installed on existing ubuntu server. My doubt is ; Is it possible to install the zentyal on the already installed ubuntu server or please suggest me is it recommended to install the zentyal as a guest on virtual box.

Thanks for the reply, Yes sir will install the zentyal as guest but please suggest me will it be fine in the production environment. Please suggest.
What I meant in my earlier post was I don't recommend Zentyal as guest on Ubuntu. Ubuntu itself can be configured for Samba, dhcp, dns, ftp, Squid etc..
