Chapter Seven. Server Installation


Ingredients:

· Anonymous ftp
· A Listserver
· A Web server

We have now come to recipes for the main course. You may serve a simple yet satisfying dish (anonymous ftp), an efficient diet-conscious meal (Listserver), or a variety of chef's specials (Web servers). The course should have the appropriate side dishes and condiments (search capability).
