Where are you guys getting stuck? This [url=http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/Rails+on+CentOS+4.3+with+Apache+and+FastCGI+Simply]guide[/url] was pretty good.

Re: please help me to configure my sendmail

Autoresponders are usually configured with Procmail. Take a look at this How-To for details: http://www.knowplace.org/pages/howtos/autoresponder_with_procmail_howto.php. I have used it in the past successfully.

Re: Installation problems -- can't get passed second screen

It could possibly be that Anaconda doesn't recognize one or more pieces of your hardware. I'm assuming with a machine that old will not be running X so go ahead and try the text based installer. When prompted with the command line at the beginning of the Anaconda type in: [code] boot: linux text [/c...

It is more of a hassle to use a chroot environment, but it is much more secure than using straight write access to your http document root. Basically, a chroot FTP environment locks the user in one directory, rather that allowing them to browse through the filesystem. I've found that it is easier to...
