Hi,
Me and My friend are going to open a company and we have 3 PCs that we will use as the server. All 3 of them are using Suse (Linux, in other words)

But its a little hard configuring and controlling it, so we're looking for a decent free control panel to do all the work, some features that we can't do now are:
Subdomains
Stats
IP blocking
and loads of others, although we don't want to spend too much on something like cPanel as we are only going to use it for our company, and nothing else.

Found some:
http*//webcp.can-host.com/ - Doesn't work on our system :-(
http*//sourceforge.net/projects/icesoundmanager/ - I think its a control panel.

Does anyone know of any others?

Have you looked at Webmin?

"Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any browser that supports tables and forms (and Java for the File Manager module), you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and so on. "

Thats a control panel for the Ice Window Manager. To be honest it'll be easier if you go to a bookstore and pick up an O'Reilly book. If you don't know what the control panel is using then it won't be much help.

Oh, and its "My friend and I..."...

Like mogwai said, go with Webmin - it's the best and it's free.

Thanks for the link, never noticed that, I'll try it on...

About the http*//sourceforge.net/projects/icesoundmanager/ I didn't look at the site, its in the top ten results in Google for "Open Source Control Panel"

And what is this O'Rielly thing anyway?

Oops... Helps if I can spell. O'Reilly books are (in my opinion) the best publisher of IT books. I've always found their books to be the most helpful reference to anything I've had to work on. Well written, lots of clear examples and they have nice pictures of animals on the front.
