Newbie questions

I apologize if these questions are answered elsewhere, but considering most of the site is in German, it makes it difficult for me to search through.

First, I am wishing to install this on a dedicated machine and access it from another machine in the house. Is there any issues with this? Instead of going to http://localhost, would I just go to http://192.168.0.20 or whatever IP address the computer running the software is assigned?

The other question may be more obvious when I install the software (I have just found out about XAMPP and not at home to attempt to install it yet), what directory will be the home directory?

Is there any site, primarily in English, that has more "How-to" information on settings and such?

Maybe that's the reason for an English subforum? ;-)

That's the normal behaviour for the Apache webserver:
You can access it over a network.

what directory will be the home directory?

http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html#385
(you are searching for the DocumentRoot)

XAMPP is just a (preconfigured) package of a normal Apache, MySQL, Perl and PHP. Each of these projects have a good online manual.
