Hi all,


As a 'lurker' on this group for the past few years, I finally need some
Linux help!


I have been using an 'evaluation' copy of SBS2003 for some time, but
have finally had enough of it!  I am looking to replace this to ideally
get the following core features (but ideally as much functionality as
possible of course):


Windows fileshares

Webserver(s) - will be hosting several domains

Email - to integrate with Outlook, and push to windows mobile via OMA,
oh, and I also want webmail access

Central administration of usernames / passwords, ideally hosting a
Windows domain (not workgroup)

Printing services

DNS, DHCP servers

Support for raid ideally via RocketRaid (I have a rather large file
collection on one, and most Linux's recognise it as several drives, not


That's the core of it, but loads more wishlist items.....


I am looking at Clarkconnect (Redhat based) does anyone have any
experience of this, or can anyone recommend any other alternatives?
