New to Ubuntu and networking in general.
I have been tasked at my office to setup a 'system' for 5 desktops (hardwired), 4 laptops (wireless), 1 wireless color printer, 1 wired laser MFP, 1 wired laser printer.
Network equipment we already have: Linksys Etherfast 4116 switch, Linksys/Cisco wireless router, DSL connection
Computer equipment: 5 BASIC desktops containing 4 GB RAM, various size hard drives (1 in each one), simple video card, sound card, monitor, keyboard, mouse
I have added a D-Link ShareCenter for files connected to the 4116.
I will be adding a 'server' to which I would like to install Ubuntu, OpenOffice, Acrobat pro, etc., in addition I would like to turn the current desktops into clients.
Help, where do I start and what should I be putting in place?
Like I said in the start I am new to Ubuntu, somewhat new to networking, but not to computers in general.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
