Final Study Guide

    For those new to Linux, view the Linux class power points here. Good ones to review would be chapters 1-4.


OK, so we had some problems with Ubuntu 10.4. To keep us all on the same page, we'll use 9.10 instead. It's available here.

A great reference for Ubuntu is the Ubuntu Guide.

Worldwide web server usage statistics are available from Netcraft.

Interesting numbers and facts from IANA.

Download Microsoft software from DreamSpark.

The low-down on Virtual PC:
    If you're using Windows Server 2003, XP or Vista (32-bit or 64-bit), grab Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 from here. Make sure to get either the 32-bit or 64-bit download as appropriate.
    If you're using Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit), you want the new Microsoft Virtual PC, details here.

For all of the Virtual PC installations - your virtual machines can only run 32-bit operating systems. So if you grab Ubunutu or Windows Server 2008, make sure to get 32-bit/x86 versions.
