Hey Marc,
not sure how to get it to work... i use plsk on some linux boxes and I am not
that happy with it at all....u may want to look into cpanel, or possibly some
of the free control panels (there are a couple out there).

one thing you could do if u wanted to see how plesk works, get a dedicated box
with plesk installed from another ISP, for a month or too, and pull it to
bits ;) it's the only way I figured out how to get it to work in linux...

if u need to, feel free to ask me off-list about specifics, i'll check on my
linux box.
