I am newbie in Apache concepts and only know Apache Tomcat. Following is my requirement, would anybody please help me how to setup.

I have a clustered JBOSS EAP 6.3 instances running on two different Windows 8 machines. Now I am planning to put a load balancer to dispatch the requests to these JBOSS clustered servers.

I am thinking of Apache httpds as a load balancer. What I got to know is these Apache web server will be available in source code and source code needs to be compiled as per the environment.

I am not finding any Windows 8 (64bit) Apache http installed in the Apache site. Would someone help me from where to download the Windows 8 (64bit) version of Apache httpd service.

And also any guide to setup the load balancer on Windows machine.

I just bought a laptop with Windows8 is pre-installed. It uses several partitions and First I thought of removing it completely. However, I've paid for it so first let it be (by the way it is completely unusable for somebody who has used UNIX/Linux over the past 25 years).
Now I have shrunk one Windows partition to 250 GB to install Ubuntu on. However, when I start installing the first thing that's asked is a device for the boot loader installation. I give /dev/sda6 (which is the partition I would use for Ubuntu) but it complains that it is used for mount point / (natural) and it want a separate partition for the bootloader code which should be marked as a "Reserved BIOS boot area".
I assume it will need an area for the grub loader in the boot-area but there is of course already the WIndows boot code. As extra information: I install in legacy mode as UEFI is too new for me.

I have Windows 8.1 64-bit! Irfanview works fine for me but I've had to un-install.

Now I'm trying to re-install it to get it to function properly but it's telling me to manually create the directory and try again.

Are any of you experiencing this difficulty? Will/can some one please show me how to get this installed again and up and running?
