dc.description.abstract With small businesses being the backbone of the American economy, software developers need to be sure their products are suitable for use in a small business environment. While many server operating systems do exist, they tend to be exceedingly expensive. Free alternatives such as SUSE 10.0, a version of Linux, are available as alternatives. This document covers four common services offered by servers: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, Domain Name System, Samba, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. Researching and testing these four services shows that while SUSE 10.0 can be used in place of more expensive mainstream server operating systems, improvements need to be made, especially to the user interface. All of the services are explained in terms of purpose, function, testing results, and a conclusion.
