I would like to setup a local network with one Ubuntu server and multiple clients(Ubuntu desktop). I need to install web server (lamp) in server and all Client machines needs to access the web server and share files installed in main Ubuntu server.
I know how to install Lamp in Ubuntu but I don't know about dns configurations to access the local web server from other machines. Also I am very new to Linux So any step by step tutorial would be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
Edit: The answers suggested here are kind of old around ubuntu 6. I am looking for an answer for Ubuntu 15.04 I followed the below tutorial which is explained in a detailed manner. I got the dns to work but still have some questions, so I am opening a new topic for that. http://lani78.com/2012/07/22/setting-up-a-dns-for-the-local-network-on-the-ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin-server/

I think that this is what are you looking for...

Setup DNS server for local network (with DHCP) for use with apache



I found a great working tutorial for ubuntu 12.04 from an expert and got it worked. http://lani78.com/2012/07/22/setting-up-a-dns-for-the-local-network-on-the-ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin-server/
