SMS Server Boot ScreenshotExcellent project, run by a Greek guy (very responsive in Project Forum) to build a no-graphic server quickly with live Cd.

Site is http://sms.it-ccs.com/ and server ISO (minimal, only 233 MB) is available here.

Perfect way to build up a Home Headless Server, since the bundled software includes all of the most common systems (e.g. https, ftp, even torrentflux) and it can be administered via Webmin.

List of included stuff:

– Servers:
Apache version 2.2.4
BIND version 9.4.1
ISC DHCPd version 3.0.5
Fetchmail version 6.3.8+SSL+NLS
HylaFAX Server version 5.1.6
MySQL version 5.0.37
OpenSLP version 1.2.1
OpenVPN version 2.0_rc16, OpenSSL version 0.9.7e
ProFTPd version 1.30
Samba version 3.025
Sendmail version 8.14.1, config V10/Berkeley
SpamAssassin version 3.2.1
Sarg version
Squid version 2.6
VsFTPd version 2.0.5
PPPD Dialing Server version 2.4.4
CUPS Print Server version 1.2.11
UW-IMAP Server

– Clients:
Open LDAP version 2.3.32
BitTorrent PHP Client TorrentFlux version 2.3
ADSL Client RP-PPPoE version 3.8
PPP Dialing Client WvDial version 1.56

– Security:

ClamAV version 0.91.1
STunnel version 4.17

– Other stuff:
Perl version 5.8.8

Python 2.5.1
Dynamic DNS Provider
Squid Analysis Report Generator
hplip (HP print/scan/fax support)
netatalk (Appletalk file and print server)
WebERP Web Based Accounting/ERP System
IlohaMail Webmail

Being based on Slackware 12, it works using modules.

Surely worth a try…
