This question already has an answer here:
I would like to make one of my home PC into a Ubuntu Server and want to access the server from my laptop. I'm having Ubuntu 13.04 in my laptop and I'm ready to install Ubuntu Server in my home PC. My pc is installed with 2.6GHz dual core processor, 2GB ram and 250GB hard disk so I think this is well enough to create a server. Since I'm new to linux environment please give some clear explantion.
