Hi Harry,

Some good suggestions so far, and I would add these:-
1.   Use postfix for your email, not sendmail.  Postfix is much easier 
to configure and use.
2.   Install Webmin - a web based server config tool.  This will make 
package customization easier if you're new to Linux.
3.   Look into LDAP for centralized user authentication.  You don't want 
to have to create users on 24 machines if you don't need to.

If you're keen to host your own email and web site, then you'll need a 
domain name that is linked to your IP address - e.g. 
somewhereinFNQ.qld.edu.au
I guess you'll need to liaise with the Qld Edu department on making 
those DNS changes.

Anyway, if you get stuck with anything, please don't hesitate to contact 
me off-line if you prefer.  I'm in the Adelaide Hills, so in global 
terms that's just next door really.

Cheers,

Ian
