Thanks for the help.
I tried the installer they offered but for some reason, I can not get it to work in my local network. My internal IP's are 192.168.0.x but ebox installer uses 10.0.2.15 address. Interesting, i can access the internet, but not my local netwrok. So I changed it to a static IP and now i could not access anything internally or externally.
I'm trying all this within virtualbox for testing.
I also tried the ubuntu server, but for some reason once it was installed, when it tried to boot up i got a panic code and said CPU was too old. (AMD X2 dual core).
Im going to try ubuntu on my server under virtualbox and see what happens there.
thanks for your help.
