I want to set up a php webserver in my house. I have win XP home and cable. I haev read a lot of things and I am still not sure how to so this. Do I need win XP pro? I tried installing win 2003 Enterprise but it keeps freezing before it gets installed (i think its my video card but that another topic). I already know how to set a dual boot into linux but I am not really sure how to use Linux. I know of apache but I not really sure how to use it. I have also set up a no-ip address because mine is assigned dynamically.
I guess my questions are this
1. What OS do I need?
2. What other software do I need?
more questions will come later if can't figure anything else out
