I am attempting to install OES for evaluation purposes and am having a difficult time with it. I have downloaded the Planning and Implementation Guide and the Installation guide but there seems to be certain amount of assumed knowledge required to use these guides that I don't have.

My installation of OES is for a simple standalone file server with a software raid1 installation. There are other servers in the company that handle all the other services. Much of what OES has to offer I don't need to use and this is where the challenge is. I need to know what basic services are that are necessary to install to allow OES to function as only a file server.

If anyone has any suggestions on additional resources available to assist in the installation I'm all ears. I've use Novell products for years but this install is challenging.
