An old Desktop PC and/or laptop with a CD/DVD drive or a USB slot should be sufficient. Additionally, the student must have access to either a blank USB thumbdrive or a CD/DVD burner. Using these components to install Ubuntu Server will be covered in the course.

This course is designed for beginners, especially users who have never installed or operated an Ubuntu Linux Server. The course is designed to take students step-by-step through the process of installing and configuring a server from scratch. No experience with Linux or other server environments is necessary. Intermediate users are encouraged to enroll at their own discretion. For example, if they are in need of a basic knowledge of RAID, SSH, Samba, cron jobs, and/or Apache. Advanced users will already know how to use such features and are therefore discouraged from enrolling in this course.
