Dedicated server for links SQL
HI:
I guess (hope) this is the rigth forum for this question...

I am about to buy links SQL (now I guess I am going to wait for the next release). I ordered some time ago an account at vservers for this project but I am now thinking that a dedicated server is a better option since I dont want to move my site once it is successful (if it happens).

So far dedicated hosting (at around 450) was out of the question for this non profit site but not long ago I read that widgetz got a server from dialtoneinternet and I found a server I liked for 250/month, which seems razonable (if I also move there some accounts that dont use any traffic but anyway cost around 30/month).

The problem? I heard from them because Jerry was having problems with the setup of the server actually. Since I dont have experience with linux/server configuration and so far I seem to learn more slowly than he does (at least) I was wondering what kind of experience/knowledge is needed to run a server (and specially a dialtoneinternet server)?

What kind of maintenance is required once everything is setup? (I assume my virtual hosts do something in my actual shared server, I dont know really)

The benefits of a dedicated server are clear. Are there any problems associated with a DS that I am not aware of?

To make my question more clear: I wouldnt mind reading a book or other material on the subject and I want to learn, but I dont want to become a slave of my server and I am not a system administrator (or whatever is called, SO who knows a lot about OS, unix or even Telnet... )

Thanks for the advice
