Default Red Hat 9 as a Server

I am a linux newbie. I just installed RH9 on a 466Mhz PII w 128mb of RAM. I want to set this box up as a server, and I am looking for some help in getting started. Does anyone know of a site, or have a file which can help? The only thing I have done is set up the internet connection. Your help is greatly appreciated.

What services do you want to run? What do you want the box to do?

these are good questions to start with, if you want a web server the best thing is to put your cd's in the drive and install the httpd rpm, that will install apache for you. if you want mail you will need to configure sendmail as the MTA and possibly wu_pop or qpopper as the pop server.

let us know where you want to go with the server and we can help more.
