Fedora Core 4

Requirements

To install such a system you will need the following:
1 The Base System

Boot from your Fedora Core 4 CD (CD 1) or DVD.

It can take a long time to test the installation media so we skip this test here:

The welcome screen of the Fedora installer appears:

Choose your language next:

Select your keyboard layout:

We want to install a server so we choose Server here:

Now we have to partition our hard disk. You can choose to let the Fedora installer do the partitioning, or you can do it yourself. I want to create a small /boot partition (less than 100 MB) with the file system ext3, a swap partition and a huge / partition (again with ext3):

Now the boot loader GRUB will be installed. You can leave the default settings unchanged and click on Next:

On to the network settings. The default setting here seems to be to configure the network interfaces with DHCP, but we are installing a server, so static IP addresses are not a bad idea... Click on the Edit button at the top right. In the window that pops up uncheck Configure using DHCP and give your network card a static IP address (in this tutorial I'm using the IP address 192.168.0.100 for demonstration purposes):

Set the hostname manually, e.g. server1.example.com, and enter a gateway (e.g. 192.168.0.1) and up to three DNS servers (e.g. 145.253.2.75 and 193.174.32.18):

On the next screen we select No firewall (there's a firewall coming with ISPConfig that we want to use) and disable SELinux:

Click on Proceed (remember, we are going to use the ISPConfig firewall):

Select the default language for the system:

Choose your time zone:

Give root a password:

Now we are to select the package groups we want to install. Select Editors, Text Based Internet, Server Configuration Tools, Web Server, Mail Server, DNS Name Server, FTP Server, MySQL Database, Network Servers, Development Tools, Administration Tools and System Tools and click on Next:

The installer tells you which CDs it will need to install the selected packages:

The installation begins. This will take a few minutes:

Finally, the installation is complete, and you can remove your CD/DVD from the computer and reboot it:


Quota

Edit /etc/fstab to look like this (I added ,usrquota,grpquota to LABEL=/ (mount point /):

# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults,usrquota,grpquota        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
LABEL=SWAP-sda3         swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/hdc                /media/cdrecorder       auto    pamconsole,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0                /media/floppy           auto    pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

Then run:

touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
chmod 600 /aquota.*
mount -o remount /
quotacheck -avugm
quotaon -avug
