Is there a way to install the kernel man pages (section 9) in ubuntu? In fedora, running "yum install kernel-doc" install them.

In Ubuntu, I tried:

apt-get install kernel-doc
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Error: Unable to locate package kernel-doc

I think  you want the package linux-doc. But... there are no man pages in it.

Any suggestions on how I should install/configure Ubuntu server on the following hardware that I'm acquiring tomorrow?

Dual Xeon 2.0 GHz processors
5 x 146 GB SCSI Hot Swap Drives (10 Bays available and maybe filled in the near future)
16 GB RAM
1 Gb NIC

This machine will be used for various game servers (minecraft and the like) for my Son and his group of friends. It will also handle email/chat/ssh/file sharing as well.

I was thinking that maybe something like Proxmox first and then multiple virtual machines under that? I have zero experience with that but it will be fun to experiment.

I am trying to understand whether linux is kernel or os?
From so many sites i have found that linux is just a kernel and Red-hat/Centos/Ubuntu are using Linux kernel and making their own OS.

But from linux.org i read that linux is an Operating System.So, i am confused what exactly Linux is?

And Why linux is always associated with GNU. Everytime i see GNU/Linux only instead of Linux.

Can anyone help?
