Red Hat 7.1 - Bieng a web server

If I have an ADSL connection (therefore with a static IP Address) is it possible to use Red Hat Linux 7.1 straight from the CD to become a web server to host my own web pages (If I have a domain name registered to that IP Address).

I've read about Apache, is this what is used to make files viewable online by others or is there some other stuff needed. Also, would I need to do a Server Class installation or would a workstation class suffice?

Any help would be appreciated, Paul.

If you want to run a Apache server, I recommend you install your operating system in server mode and install to hard disk. If you are beginner, running from the CD from might be confusing because of the need for temporary files and to make changes. The easiest way (that we all did as beginners) is to install to hard disk, a full sever install.

Yes, Apache is great, the world finest and most widely used web server software.
