I recently reformatted my old computer (with an AMD processor). I also have a static IP address from my service provider and a Belkin router. I want to turn my computer into a server/website where I can store files and access them from the internet (ie: outside my network). Is this possible with linux and Apache? I'm not sure what distro and what product of Apache I need. Also, what steps should I take to get it running? Does anyone know what products/approach works best for my situation?

Thanks!

If you want ease of use I suggest Fedora Core 4 for this, then do a search for LAMP server on Google to get the steps required to install a Linux/Apache/mySQL/PHP(Perl) server.

FC4 is easy to setup and if you are feeling lazy you can let it do the majority of configuration and setup of the LAMP server for you.
