Good guide. I use debian myself. I have no experience with the OS you mention of, haven't even heard of it. Debian works extremely well in low end computers though. Command line of course, no gui. You can install the x system on it, but not much point. You might as well use a different os if you want the gui interface.
Ubuntu is Debian based and once i track down the command i can set it to run command line.

Can you do a guide as to where you can set it up so someone can log in and also upload stuff onto your server? Maybe even setting multiple accounts?

I got the apache server running. I have no idea how to accress it through the web, I think it is suppose to be through a IP Address, but what is that address? Also since I have Apache, I am pretty sure IIs doesn't work for it, so what do I use for FTP uploading?

I'd go over and ask in a linux forum even though you aren't running a linux OS they are very smart when it comes to running apache.
